It is as if we have not evolved, at least in our thinking, as we view  World Food Day, knowing that weapons and weapons technology gains huge investments while we are still standing by overseeing a future where food and water is unobtainable for many. We should feel ashamed.



The World Food Day theme for 2013 is “Sustainable Food Systems for Food Security and Nutrition”.

Enough food is produced for all to eat but it may not be produced efficiently so that all can access it and up to a third is wasted (see infographic below).
