World Food Day

Dear Editor,
16 October is observed as World Food Day in honor of the date of the founding of Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1945 and is concerned about food security and their fight to end hunger and malnutrition.
Every time we think of wasting even a morsel of food we should remember that millions of people on this planet go to bed without food.
Though we discuss technological advancement and identify with spirituality, yet it is difficult to digest that millions are hungry & would agree with Mahatma Gandhi’s quote “To a man with an empty stomach food is God” Let us pledge that if we can’t feed hundred people, at least feed one.
