World Food Week—Oct 16–23, 2014

Today, October 16, 2014, is the annual World Food Day.

Food by the Numbers

To celebrate, National Geographic invites the world to view a video. When I watched, the two-minute investment included an opening commercial, which coincidentally fit well because it built up to this:

What if everywhere you went [pause] you experienced so much more than you expected.

That will happen with food if we work toward what the video proposes, which is more productive and efficient use of the farmland and food we already have available.

Here’s the video: Food by the Numbers: Feeding Our Hungry Planet.

This is important, so let’s be generous and give it a bonus week. Celebrate World Food Week, October 16–23 or for as long as you want.
