Dear teachers and students, my name is XXX from XXX. It’s my honor to make a speech here. Today I am going to talk about World Food Day. World Food Day is on October 16th. It was set up by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations to arouse the world’s attention to the development of food and agricultural production.
Since 1981, World Food Day adopts a different theme each year in order to present a common focus and highlight areas needed for action. The theme of the approaching World Food Day this year is “Our Actions Are Our Future. A Zero Hunger World By 2030 Is Possible”.
Some three billion people, or half the world’s population, currently live in tropical and sub-tropical regions, and their number is set to double by the end of the century. But most of them are suffering from hunger. They don’t have enough food to eat. As we all know, food is our life. No one can survive without food. With international population growing, demand of foodstuffs keeps increasing. Therefore, dramatically it’s important for us to save our food.
As World Food Day is coming, let’s start our #Zero Hunger work together. As the poem says “Who knows food, the grain is hard.” We should save our food. When we are getting our lunch or dinner in the school canteen, we can ask for the food that suits ourselves. We can also contribute some money to the poor area. Let’s take actions.
That’s all, Thank you for your listening.
