World Food Day Set for October 16

Officially celebrated on Sunday, Oct. 16, World Food Day, will be observed world-wide during the month of October to bring attention to the plight of the hungry and undernourished in the territory and the world. This year’s World Food Day theme selected by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations is “Climate is Changing, Food and Agriculture Must Too.”

World Food Day activities include a formal ceremony, food vendors’ court, farmers’ market, workshops, demonstrations, entertainment, and free vegetable seedlings.  Each year, three agricultural products are highlighted, and this year’s selections are leafy greens, coconut, and chicken.

Come and support young aspiring chefs as they compete in the ninth Annual World Food Day 4-H Youth “Super Chef” Competition.  The competition is open to all students of junior and senior high schools. There will also be an open Coconut “Blast” Competition for the public. Come and wow the judges with your best desserts, preserves, and drink recipes.
