World Food Day Highlights the Global Imbalance of Food Distribution

Today marks the second annual World Food Day—instituted by the Department of Agriculture, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and 262 private voluntary organizations as a day to observe the international state of hunger and food distribution. It came to light earlier this year that Americans waste 40 percent of their food every day, while 1 in 7 worldwide do not receive enough nutrition, according to the U.N. How can the scale be tipped back into balance? This is the question World Food Day seeks to illuminate at a local and global level.
