Today is World Food Day.
World Food Day (WFD) is a worldwide event designed to increase awareness, understanding and informed, year-around action to alleviate hunger. It is observed each October 16th in recognition of the founding of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in 1945. The first World Food Day was in 1981. In the United States the endeavor is sponsored by 450 national, private voluntary organizations.
A wholly worthy endeavor, and I urge all F&S readers to help raise awareness of the fragile nature of the worldwide food production and distribution network by taking some time to disengage from it.
Forego your manufactured factory-farm mystery meat and your bleached flour, high fructose corn syrup injection-molded processed food products.
Skip work. Skip school. Go hunting. Go fishing. Kill something honorably and then it eat it without shame, for by doing so you are engaging in the most physically, spiritually and intellectually honest activity to which a human can aspire.
