Every year, the World Food Day is observed on 16th October. New promises are made each year, new plans are finalized, new efforts are made, but still the world is lacking provision of food. According to a report, the world’s population will increase up to 9.5 billion by 2050. The provision of food to the population will be a bigger challenge for all of us.
According to 2030 agenda, everyone needs to put efforts to reduce the global hunger. We can take start from our own local communities. There would be many people around us who would go to sleep without eating something. Are we not responsible for their hunger? There is a need to look closely around us and to identify the people who are facing hunger and unable to get food.
Quality food also plays a vital role in lessening the global hunger across the world. To get the healthy and balanced diet is the right of everyone and there should be strict laws to follow the food standards that would meet everyone’s basic needs.
On this day, we need to make efforts to reduce the wastage of food in any form. People need to be educated in order to save the mankind from the extreme hunger in the years to come. Global hunger is also due to climatic changes, economic factors, less rains etc. To save our future generations, the world leaders need to agree on a single agenda and that is to fight against this global hunger to save the human race.
