World Food Day (WFD)–October 16–was founded by the United Nations’ (UN) in 1945 to increase awareness of world hunger and poverty and to inspire solutions for change. Approximately 805 million people in the world, or 1 in 9 people, suffer from hunger every year, and hunger and malnutrition are linked to one third of all child deaths around the world. Five children die every minute because they are not eating enough healthy food.
