World Food Day 2008

World Food Day 2008

World Food Day takes place on October 16, this year. The theme is World Food Security: the Challenges of Climate Change and Bioenergy.

World Food Day provides an occasion to once again highlight the plight of 923 million undernourished people in the world. Most of them live in rural areas where their main source of income is the agricultural sector. Global warming and the biofuel boom are now threatening to push the number of hungry even higher in the decades to come.–/www.fao.org

    Another great way to show your support is to vote for International Medical Corp, which is in the running to receive $1.5 million in donations from American Express for their worldwide campaign to save malnourished children.

    They’re so close, they just need more votes! Check it out here: http://internationalmedicalcorps.smnr.us/
