Q: When was World Food Day first held?

Q: Why is World Food Day celebrated on October 16th?
A: World Food Day celebrates the creation of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) on 16 October 1945 in Quebec, Canada.

Q: What is the foundation of food security?
A: Availability, access and use. Food security is a condition related to the ongoing availability of food, people's access to it and their proper nutritional use of it.

Q: Malnutrition causes largely irreversible damage after what age?
A: 2 years old. The first two years of life are a critical “window of opportunity”. In this period it is possible to prevent the largely irreversible damage that follows early childhood undernutrition. Worldwide food programs routinely focus on the earliest phase of life, i.e. from conception to 24 months of age, to ensure under-twos receive the vitamins and minerals they need.

Q: What percentage of the world's farms are considered 'family farms?'
A: 98%. 500 million out of the 570 million farms in the world are family farms. Family farms are fruit and vegetable farms, grain farms, orchards, livestock ranches, and even fisheries and those that harvest non-wood forest products. They include all family-based agricultural activities that are managed and operated by a family and rely predominantly on family labor.

Q: How many of the world's children are stunted due to malnutrition?
A: 26%. In developing countries, it can be 33%.

Q: Many family farmers lack access to what?
A: All of the above. Many family farmers lack access to good seeds, adequate storage for their crops, transportation, well-functioning markets, financing, and policy support. Supporting family farmers in these ways can improve productivity, reduce food losses and increase farmers' incomes.

Q: More than 1 billion people depend on the production of what crop for their livelihood?
A: Rice. More than 3.5 billion people depend on rice for at least 20% of their daily calories. Family farms are the main source of rice production, especially in Asia.

Q: How many people are estimated to be chronically undernourished worldwide?
A: 805 million people around the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy, active life.

Q: How many children worldwide, under the age of 5 are estimated to die of malnutrition every day?
A: 8,000. That's nearly 3 million every year, with another 2 million more children over the age of 5.
