It's #WorldFoodDay

Much of our work at @OurWorldInData covers food & agriculture – it's central to many of the world's largest problems

Feeding everyone a nutritious diet in a sustainable way is one of our biggest challenges this century

Thread of some of our work on this 👇
No one in the world should go hungry.

Global hunger has declined massively over the long-term, but more than 1-in-10 (> 820M people) are undernourished.

This is unacceptable in a world where we produce more than enough for everyone.

Our work on hunger:…
Despite rapid population growth over the last century, famines have become much more rare.

Today they are largely the result of sociopolitical instability, war and inequality vs. a lack of food on aggregate.

@JoeHasell and @MaxCRoser's work on Famines:

It's #WorldFoodDay! 🍎🥬🥕

With tens of millions of people at risk of falling into extreme poverty & malnutrition because of #COVID19 pandemic, global solidarity & support are needed more to than ever to help those in need.

DYK: Before the #COVID19 pandemic, over 2 billion people did not have regular access to safe, nutritious & sufficient food.

130 million more people could now fall into chronic hunger by the end of 2020.

Overcoming hunger & #malnutrition is more than securing enough food to survive: what people eat must also be nutritious.

Yet 3⃣ billion people cannot afford a healthy diet.

This #WorldFoodDay, let us renew our commitment to meeting the challenge of food insecurity head on. If we want to achieve #ZeroHunger we need to make healthy and sustainable diets affordable & accessible to everyone.
We have an obligation to support vulnerable children in accessing nutritious meals. That’s why last month I reintroduced the Access to Healthy Foods for Young Children Act to improve the Child and Adult Care Food Program.
Additionally my Global Food Security Act has helped the US address global hunger while creating greater international stability, yet this administration continuously attempts to undermine its authorization. This bipartisan effort is an essential component of achieving #ZeroHunger

HAPPENING NOW: The @EdLaborCmte is holding a hearing on this administration's proposed rule that would threaten the food security for 1 million children. Watch live! #NationalSchoolLunchWeek
@EdLaborCmte As @RepBonamici explains, by the USDA's own analysis, the proposed change would cut automatic free school lunch access for almost "1 million children." This move will greatly threaten the nutrition and education of many school children. #NationalSchoolLunchWeek
@EdLaborCmte @RepBonamici .@RepMarciaFudge: So because one person scammed the system, we're supposed to punish hungry kids...Don't punish all of these hungry children in this country or senior citizens because one person broke a rule. #NationalSchoolLunchWeek

For #WorldFoodDay where to start in #Pompeii & the Vesuvian sites? So many foods are represented in frescoes but have also been found preserved, predominantly in the form of carbonised remains, in archaeological excavations. The most famous is the daily staple of a loaf of bread.
One of my favourite food discoveries from #Pompeii is the incredible survival of this ceramic bowl of eggs found in the House of Julius Polybius. His near neighbour, Julia Felix, had a fresco of a plate of eggs (and a tea towel!) adorning the wall of her study. #WorldFoodDay
Possibly the most infamous foodstuff from #Pompeii is garum made by fermenting blood & innards of fish. Umbricius Scaurus was a proud garum producer & had mosaics of his garum amphorae in his house. It’s an ingredient used to bring together flavours of the dish. #WorldFoodDay

A healthy diet and the right nutrients during pregnancy protects the health of mothers and their babies

@WHOSEARO @WHOWPRO @WHO_Europe @WHOAFRO @WHOEMRO @pahowho Babies still get important nutrients through the umbilical cord even after birth.
WHO recommends cord clamping no sooner than 1 minute after birth
