What is Alexandria Food Day?
October 16th is the UN Food and Agriculture Organization's Official "World Food Day." This day "promotes worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure healthy diets for all." Here at Hunger Free Alexandria, we created "Alexandria Food Day" to turn the focus on our own community. Each October 16th, we host events and food drives in order to raise awareness about food insecurity in Alexandria.
