Celebrate World Food Day with FRB and Bread for the World!

805 million people are undernourished globally. The world’s farmers can help.

Join @FRBfarmers, @Bread4theWorld and @WorldFoodPrize for a Twitter town hall to learn how advocates and farmers can work together to #EndHungerNow! Tune in at 11 am CT on Thursday, October 16. 

We are close to realizing a world where no one goes hungry. We need civic, business, and religious leaders, policy makers, and the public on our side. And last but most certainly not least, we need the world’s farmers.

There are more than 500 million family-owned farms in the world, and these farms contribute to local economies, support sustainable agriculture, and play a crucial role in ending global hunger.  

As advocates, we must do our part to ensure farmers have the best resources to fight poverty and hunger. That’s why we’re joining Bread for the World's Twitter town hall with World Food Prize Laureates – 2014 laureate Dr. Sanjaya Rajaram and 2010 laureate Rev. David Beckmann – to learn how advocates can help small farmers reach the most people, so that together we can end hunger. 

Be part of the discussion - join our Twitter town hall Thursday, 10/16 at 11 am CT to celebrate #WorldFoodDay.  

We are committed to growing lasting solutions to hunger. Will you join us?
