Food For Thought

Today is World Food Day, which is also this year's theme for Blog Action Day.

As Alex Schlotzer discusses on his post for the day:
It’s important to really start to tackle food as a serious issue. It’s not about whether or not some countries can or can’t feed their populations now, but whether or not we’ll be able to feed an ever expanding population.

There are complicated issues at play in this debate from safety and peace in different regions; to failing food bowls; to population growth; to food wastage in industrialised nations; and to the continued industrialisation of a growing number of third-world nations.

If nothing else, I hope this blogging day worldwide raises awareness of the famine in the Horn of Africa.
