Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations announces World Food Day Poster contest.  They’re calling on children and teens all over the world, from age 5 to 19, to use their imagination and create a poster that illustrates their idea of what needs to be done to make healthy diets available for everyone and how each of us can improve our diets. Young minds will be inspired by our World Food Day Activity Book that shows why healthy eating matters and how everyone can come together and take action to achieve better nutrition and Zero hunger.
