Happy World Food Day!

Today is World Food Day! Congratulations if you ate something today! 🙂

World Food Day 2014 is dedicated to family farms and to the food that comes from them. Family farms are important as they are great examples of sustainable farming and they play an important role in saving traditional crops and agrobiodiversity.

Below is an interesting infographic from The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations that tells more about family farming and important facts on the topic.

Many of the foods in this blog come from family farms. You can see great examples of students getting to know local food crops on small land patches here and here.

Still often we forget about where our food comes from and who grew it. Today is a great day to say “Thank you!” to the farmer who gave us our food.

How much do you know about your local family farms?
