Most of the food holidays we talk about here are trivial and fun. But this one actually has some meaning behind it.
It's World Food Day, the annual day held to promote awareness of hunger and poverty around the globe. The theme this year is "The Right To Food - Make It Happen!" The World Food Day USA site has more information on the day, including the various events being held to mark the day. There will also be a teleconference broadcast today at noon.
