Main National Food Days




October 16th is World Food Day.  A Day dedicated to ending World Hunger.  Will that ever happen?  I certainly hope so.  Let’s all help where we can!


Aside from saving the world from hunger it would be fun to see if we can come up with 26 different foods – one for each letter of the Roman Alphabet that each represents a different country.  Then let’s see how many of those foods we have eaten and then how many of those foods we have actually made or grown.  Fun, Yes?  I think so!  Maybe then we can all do one thing to help end world hunger and malnutrition.   Anyone have a dish for U – if so, please let me know in the comment section.  Thank You!
