World Food Day 2013

One in eight people suffer from chronic hunger on this planet. It's a sad truth that there are approximately 842 million hungry people around the world. World Food Day, October 16, aims to draw attention to the malnutrition and poverty across the world. The theme for this year's World Food Day 2013 is Sustainable Food Systems for Food Security and Nutrition.

There are plenty of ways for everyday people to get involved in this growing movement. On their website, World Food Day USA, maps out events happening in your area. If you are unable to locate an event or attend one in your vicinity, there is always the option to create your own! If you're feeling uninspired, the website has some suggestions to help you out.

In this day and age, it's a tragedy that anyone should have to go hungry. Obviously we are the lucky ones, and I feel like it's our duty to help the less fortunate. As we were cleaning out our house these past few days, I set aside some unopened food items that will be making their way to a local food pantry.

Recently, I was selected as a Happy Blogger, for Happy Family Brands. I'm ecstatic to be working with this brand, because not only do the girls love their healthy organic snacks, but the company is dedicated to helping the community. Happy Family Brands has partnered with Project Peanut Butter and the Feed Foundation to help end hunger.

What can you do to help end world hunger?

Love, Alex
