This year, join the fight to help alleviate world hunger. Currently, 923 million people around the world are starving. World Food Day, held every year on October 16, is an international event put on to acknowledge the founding of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization and promote ways to diminish hunger around the world. All planned events bring people together to raise awareness and funds.

Many events will be held in the United States and around the world. Check the World Food Day Web site to see if there is an event in your area. Anyone can host their own gathering, so if you’re interested, get tips here. It can be as simple as meeting with a small group and brainstorming ways to get involved in your own community.

This blog has been written, in part, in response to Blog Action Day 2008. This year thousands of bloggers will unite to discuss poverty and raise awareness.
