In large parts of the world small holder farming families are the norm and with more than 805 million hungry people world wide, the UN says they play a vital role in food production.

For example upwards of 70 per cent of people in Sub-Saharan-Africa rely directly on small farms for their livelihoods and helping them grow and earn more from their farms will contribute to the wealth and survival of communities.

World Food Day was first launched by the United Nations in 1981.
