"Today's World Food Day is not only a reminder of the importance of food for every person on the planet, but also a call to action to achieve food security around the world," said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in a message.

"Today, at least 40% of humanity - 3 billion people - do not have access to a healthy diet. Hunger, malnutrition and obesity are on the rise. The pandemic has increased by 140 million people who do not have access to the food they need. At the same time, the way we produce, consume and waste food has a profound impact on the planet. "It puts unprecedented pressure on our natural resources, climate and natural environment, costing trillions of dollars every year," said Antonio Guterres.

Referring to this year's theme of the Day "Our Actions are our Future", he notes that the power for change is in our hands. "Last month, people attended the United Nations Conference on Food Systems. Countries have made generations of commitments to transform food systems. To make healthy eating more economical and accessible. "To make food systems more efficient, durable and sustainable at every step - from production and processing, to sale, transport and receipt," he said.

In this context, the UN Secretary General stressed that we can all change the way we consume food and make healthier choices for ourselves and the planet. In our food systems there is hope, he said and urged on the occasion of today's World Food Day, to "commit to take action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals through food systems that offer better nutrition, a better environment and a better future for all."
