More about the event....

Chat with like minded people about how we can mitigate the impact on the sustainability, security and nutrition of our food by...
- learning how to make compost and herb planting
- support our local farms and farmers / organic farming and produce
- and protect natural resources from deforestation and contamination

We can impact all these three reasons directly by eating enjoying a veg plate in support of World Food Day and local project Veggie Thursday! --www.veggiethursday.sg


DID YOU KNOW...

Malnutrition costs the global economy $3.5 trillion per year or $500 per person?

Our food system is a dominant force behind many environmental threats. 60% of the world’s ecosystems are degraded or used unsustainably, which poses serious threats to food security and nutrition.

International World Food Day was first designated by the United Nations on 22 March 1993. It is held annually as a means of focusing attention on the importance of Many think that hunger is about too many people and too little food. But that’s not true. Our planet produces enough food to feed every woman, man, and child. Instead, hunger is about power. Its roots lie in inequalities in access to resources. Right now, many farmers in poor countries—the people who grow the food the world relies on—don’t have the power to access the resources they need to thrive. - See more at:
