World Food Day being observed


KARACHI: Like in other parts of the world, the World Food Day is being celebrated in Pakistan on Friday (October 16), to create awareness on the issue of hunger and help develop strategies for ensuring food security.


This year, the theme of the World Food Day is “Social Protection and Agriculture: Breaking the Cycle of Rural Poverty,” which aims to sensitize the people about eradicating rural poverty and ensuring food protection for all.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) celebrates World Food Day on 16 October, the day on which the Organization was founded in 1945.
