World Food Day 2015
'Social Protection and Agriculture: Breaking the Cycle of Rural Poverty'

World Food Day is celebrated every year around the world on the 16th of October to commemorate the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) in 1945.

It is a chance to focus on global poverty and hunger and the vital role agriculture – including Irish agriculture – can play in resolving these issues.

2014 was the year of the 'Family Farming: Feeding the world, caring for the earth, and to coincide with World Food Day, Agri Aware partnered with Gorta and Concern to develop an educational leaflet for schools around Ireland.

The official celebration of World Food Day 2015 will be celebrated at Expo Milano where UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will address the opening ceremony. The theme for 2015 is 'Social Protection and Agriculture: Breaking the Cycle of Rural Poverty'.

To celebrate World Food Day 2015, Agri Aware have made their educational leaflet available online, for teachers, educators, and those willing to learn more, to download and learn all about about the important role Irish farms play in sustainable agriculture.
