Holidays and Notable Events: World Food Day

Celebrated on October 16 each year in honor of the date the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations was founded in 1945.

Events include an annual Hunger Run, a 10K competitive race and a 5K non-competitive walk/run held to focus public attention on the fact that hundreds of millions of people around the world still live in chronic hunger and to raise funds to help hunger-affected communities meet their own food needs over the long term.

The 2013 Hunger Run will be held October 20 at Terme di Caracalla in Rome, Italy.
