World Food Day is celebrated every year across the world on 16th October.
The theme for this year 2022 is “Leave no one behind”
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) designated 16 October as a special day and this has been on as a World Food Day since 1979 and up until now.
Since, there is no looking back at the annual celebration, The Food and Agricultural Organization has however noted that in recent decades, many people have changed their eating habits and diets due to urbanization, globalization and the rise of disposable income.
WFD celebrations come in different ways. Some choose to organize events to promote worldwide awareness about food and the need to eat well.
Others however choose to push out actions that will help the plight of those who suffer from hunger and malnutrition.
But ultimately, there is a dire need to ensure food security and nutritious diets for all across different countries of the world.
The focus of the day stresses the need to see food as a basic and fundamental human right that the world cannot neglect or sweep under the carpet.
Gourmet Guide234 Kitchen has however celebrated the annual World Food Day the Nigerian way for close to ten years now, since the year 2013. In fact, this is the 9th edition in this year of our Lord 2022.

However, some of the old pictures popped up in the food gallery and the unforgettable memories of the highlight of the events since 2013 suddenly flashed across my mind.
