16 October marks World Food Day (WFD), an annual global observance by those who are concerned over food supply and security in the world. According to the United Nations in 2012, about 870 million are starving and chronically undernourished, representing 12.5% of the total world population — whereby, one in every eight people starve.
When natural disasters strike, situations worsen — prices of basic essentials inflate by many folds. Provision of food is not merely for the need to survive, but a hope for the future, for the disaster-stricken communities.
