World Food Day


Today is World Food Day - a day Oxfam America is hoping everyone will stop to think about where their food comes from, the impact it has globally, and the small steps everyone can take to make the food system more fair and sustainable. It's about coming together over good food and even better conversation with this discussion guide. It's about making making sure everyone has enough food to eat, always.


Where to start? Learn about Oxfam's GROW method: Save Food, Buy Seasonal, Less Meat, Support Small-Scale Farmers, and Cook Smart. And then have it become second nature.

Be sure to follow Oxfam on Twitter and the Oxfam GROW Pinterest board for recipe ideas, news and events. And get clicky and Like Oxfam on Facebook too.

"Can you remind me to do all this when I am a grown-up mom?"

This is what my 7-year-old said to me when we were having meat-free meal yesterday and we were discussing the GROW method. I sure can kiddo. Take a moment and be thoughtful about how you are feeding your family and how that impacts the rest of the world. Because together we can grow a better future. 

This post (and my sharing on social media) was inspired by my participation in a compensated program initiated by Women Online/The Mission List to raise awareness about Oxfam America's GROW Method. All commentary and opinions are, of course, my own.
