Family farming: "Feeding the world, protecting the planet" 

For nearly seven decades, October 16th has signified international World Food Day. On this monumental day in 1945, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) was incepted, with the mission to end world hunger, as an umbrella organization of the United Nation.  It is commonplace knowledge that food is a ubiquitous need for the human condition. Yet, for a need so basic, equitable access to nourishing diets lags for millions of peoples. This disparity between malnutrition and nutrition transcends continents, countries, cultures, races, and genders. In particular, rural communities of developing countries are forced to cope with insufficient access to food security. Below please find an assortment of informational links:
