Background on "World Food"
World Food Day began as a way to recognize the founding of the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization in 1945. Today it is celebrated internationally on October 16 as a way to take collective action against hunger.
Though similar in name, the unrelated World Food Prize annually recognizes individuals who have advanced “the quality, quantity or availability of food in the world.” The prize itself was announced in June, while the symposium is in October.
The World Food Center, meanwhile, was launched as a way to lift UC Davis to the global spotlight as the top research university in food. It’s bridging in new and transformational ways food research areas like agriculture, nutrition, veterinary medicine, public policy and many others. Through strategic initiatives, the Center is magnifying UC Davis excellence for a greater impact on society and the planet's food systems.
