One craves international cuisines, 

While one craves the feeling of satiety. 

Out of love one shares food with their pets,

While one fights with the stray beings for a morsel.

Such is the state of the children of mother earth,

She weeps while looking at the helpless. 

All the farms and trees full of fruits are divided by boundaries, 

She created all these without any asset registers

We all were born to thrive happy and healthy on this planet, 

No one deserves to face the emotion of starvation.

Nevertheless, one survives the worst days and tragic turns, 

With the help of a beautiful human.

This beautiful human is one who unconditionally brightens lives, 

This human provides help to someone in need. 

This human is widely known to never waste a nibble,

He/she can be the least popular yet have the biggest heart.

This beautiful human can be us.

We can be the reason one doesn’t sleep hungry.

We can provide the helpless with a small act of love. 

The love is bound within the food we share.

Sharing food is the most unconditional gift we can give,

All the underprivileged children look at the world with eyes of hope.

These eyes expect nothing but equal opportunity to live their life,

What is the least we can do for these innocent hearts? 

This world food day, let us all pledge to never waste food,

Let us all pledge to share food with the needy,

Let us pledge to take part in making this world a heavenly place.

Let us pledge to not leave anyone behind.

We at wish you all a very Happy World Food Day. This day is celebrated every year on the 16th of October to commemorate the founding date of the FAO (food and agricultural organization of- United Nations). 

The theme of World food day 2022 is to Leave NO ONE behind. 

This year the focus is to create awareness of global hunger prevalence. The aim is to create a change that can help eradicate the problem of malnutrition. With growing globalization, many are ignored and left behind. These individuals have not benefited from human development and economic growth in the world. Many suffer from the problem of food insecurity and malnutrition. Apart from the problem of accessibility and supply, there is a huge gap in the education of people regarding nutritious diets. The one with all the access to food is still malnourished and suffering from various nutrient deficiencies.

We at aim at educating and empowering our readers with the tool of knowledge.
