One way YOU can contribute this year, is to start planning your 2016 World Food Day programming now! What better way to raise awareness than to host an author next fall who can speak to the importance of where our food comes from, how we can eat more locally and sustainably, and what steps we can take to help end hunger in our own communities. The following authors help bring a human perspective to these important global issues:
