Every year, all the UN Agencies celebrate the World Food Day on October 16, the day on which the FAO was founded in 1945. It is celebrated to raise public awareness about hunger in the world, and to encourage action towards solutions to this problem. In Sweden, the World Food Day 2015 will be celebrated on October 21.
