5 Ways to Celebrate World Food Day (and Fix Our Broken Food System)
Today is World Food Day and food lovers have found some fabulous ways to celebrate.
Food that's good for people and our planet is a human right: from farmers in Argentina and city folk in France, to children in the Philippines and foodies in the U.S., food that's organic, local and seasonal should be a delight we can all enjoy. That's why we're urging governments to ensure ecological food is available for all, at a fair price for food lovers and farmers.
