But first I want to show you a photo of my husband Kofi Annan. He is the Secretary-General of the United Nations. This is my favorite picture of him because it shows his wish to reach out to you so that you feel the UN is your UN. On this World Food Day, it is good to remember that the UN is working in many countries to bring food to people who are hungry.
Teachers can introduce their students to the problems of hunger and malnutrition using lesson plans developed by FAO (in collaboration with
other organizations) for the World Food Day Project called Feeding Minds, Fighting Hunger. Lesson plans are available for primary,
intermediate, and secondary students, in Arabic, Chinese, English,
French, Italian, and Spanish.
