This year’s theme for the World Food Day is Family Farming: “Feeding the world, caring for the earth”. The Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the United Nations (UN) chose this year’s theme with the hope of raising the profile of family and small holder farmers and their key role in food security and natural resource management. 2014 has thus been named the International Year of Family Farming by the UN General Assembly.
