Today is World Food Day!


Everybody loves food. But it’s even better if everybody has food, don’t you think? Find more about World Food Day after the jump!

While it may sound just like purely scrumptious event like the International Chocolate Day awhile back, today’s occasion is also tied in with a noble cause.

World Food Day is celebrated in honor of the founding of the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization — a specialized agency that leads international efforts to defeat hunger – in 1945. The day is celebrated widely by many other organizations concerned with food security, including the World Food Programme.

So how about sharing a meal with a loved one? Or with someone less fortunate? With a stranger, perhaps? I’m sure it’ll make someone’s day! And it won’t just be food for the body, but also food for the soul!

And while we’re at it, here’s a gallery of fine food photographs from the community to feed your analogue soul. Enjoy!
