World Food Day is celebrated internationally and was launched by the Food and 
Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations in 1979. For the last 9 years, the
Richmond Food Security Society has spearheaded the World Food Day Celebration at
the Richmond Cultural Center. This event happens at the same time across the globe to
bring awareness of local and global issues of hunger and malnutrition. It is everyone’s
responsibility to get involved and be aware of how they can make a difference here and
across the world.
