As a previous post noted World Food Day was October 16. This past week, the United Nations held a ceremony to commemorate World Food Day and draw public attention to the urgency of global hunger. Under the UN umbrella, three specialized agency of the United Nations system, the World Food Programme (WFP), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) play a critical role in addressing the crisis of hunger.
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and bring the homeless poor into your house;
when you see the naked, to cover him, and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?
