World Food Day - 2017

Monday, October 16th is World Food Day, offering the opportunity to strengthen national and international solidarity in the struggle against hunger, malnutrition and poverty and draw attention to achievements in food security and agricultural development.  World Food Day was established by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1979.  This year’s theme is Change the future of migration. Invest in food security and rural development.  For more information on about World Food Day click the website:  http://www.fao.org/world-food-day/2017/about/en/

 

I had a chance to stop by the  Atlanta Community Food Bank and did an incredible tour with the 4 H group from Douglas County, Georgia.  While during the tour, I had a chance to check out the Hunger 101 presentation which is particular important for World Food Day.  The Hunger 101 presentation  showed to increase awareness about hunger and poverty on the local, state and national levels.  This presentation is a interactive and participating community food game is showing you what is like to live in a day of a person who is a Atlanta Community Food Bank client.  The object of the game is to find out how much money you will need to purchase nutritious foods.  There where alots of obstacles that were in the way such as living 30 miles away from the places you need assistance, lack of transportation, keeping a very low budget by living on a minimum wage of $5.75 in the State of Georgia, poor access to healthy foods at the local market store, continuous paperwork to fill out for assistance, long lines and unfriendly rude workers at the assistance offices and the list goes on and on.  It was extremely hard to get healthy food especially when some of the people who were working underpaid full-time did not have the time to apply for these resources and had to accept what was sold at the local market near their home which had no fresh fruits and vegetables but had only sweets and was very expensive in prices.  This exercise gave the 4 H group students a life lesson on how hard it is to access healthy nutritious foods and that places like the Atlanta Community Food Bank is especially needed in all communities.  For more information about Hunger 101 presentation click the website below:   http://www.acfb.org/about/our-programs/hunger-101#workshops
