World Food Day

Today is World Food Day. This year’s theme is Food Prices – From Crisis to Stability. Instead of posting a lot of text, I thought I would show you this video from the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) on the Global Hunger Index, which was released a few days ago. It does a good job of explaining some of the current issues within the world food system such as rising prices and price volatility.

For more reading, you might like to look at the FT World Food Report, which came out last week.

If you want to do something to help, check out Action Against Hunger and in particular their Love Food Give Food appeal which is on until the end of October.
