World Food Day

October 16 is World Food Day, which promotes awareness about the need for food security around the world. According to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), more than 820 million people are suffering from chronic undernourishment. This year’s theme is “Our Actions are our Future”, which challenges us to fight against hunger and malnutrition. “Zero hunger means working together to ensure everyone, everywhere, has access to the safe, healthy and nutritious food they need. To achieve it, we must adopt a more sustainable lifestyle, work with others, share our knowledge and be willing to help change the world – for the better,” says the FAO.  Please pray for the well-being of rural farmers who face uncertain times due to drought and climate change. As CBM continues to partner with local churches around the world to introduce sustainable agricultural methods and alternative income-generating activities, pray that farmers and their communities would begin to rise above the cycle of poverty. May we strengthen our commitment as a global community to support those who need it most.
