Food Week of Action and World Food Day



We envision a world where  everyone has enough affordable, healthy and culturally appropriate food where no one is hungry, and where all who work in the food chain
are fairly compensated, respected and celebrated!

Join us in building more equitable and ecological food & farm systems!

The Global Food Week of Action includes World Food Day (Oct. 16), International Day for Rural Women (Oct. 15), and International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (Oct. 17).

2020 Food Week of Action

Hopeful Harvest is the theme of this year’s Oct. 11–18 Food Week of Action. A Hopeful Harvest relies on family farmers, fishers and others producing in agroecological ways that lead toward food sovereignty. As communities around the world face the pandemic and vulnerable food chains, people are realizing the necessity of more resilient agricultural systems that put workers and people first and that protect and cool the planet. Food Week will highlight groups and initiatives that are building an equitable and sustainable food-farm system – while also tackling the economic and racial drivers of hunger, poverty and oppression.
