When you sit down to eat every day, do you think about how the meal you’re eating is the product of a complex, and broken, global food system? This World Food Day, Oxfam America is teaming up with a host of allies across the US and around the globe, including acclaimed chefs Jamie Oliver, Mario Batali, Lidia Bastianich, Susan Feniger, Mary Sue Milliken, and Aarti Sequiera.
They have a simple yet compelling idea —- to host a World Food Day dinner October 16th that fosters a conversation about where your food comes from, who cultivates it, and how you can take personal actions that will make the food system more just and sustainable.
Visit Oxfam America for free materials so you can host a great World Food Day event.
Each chef generously contributed a recipe that corresponds to a principle of Oxfam’s GROW Method: five simple ideas, easy to try in your kitchen or at the grocery store, that can make a big difference for millions of others across the planet.
Host a meal, share a recipe, and spread the word this World Food Day.
