Today is World Food Day…a day set aside by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations….
The WFD may be today the 16th October but hunger does not end today. We wish to continue to increase awareness and understanding and take action and do all we can year round to alleviate hunger.
November is the month Thanksgiving is celebrated in the United States. It is a time for remembering, cherishing and being thankful for all the good things we have been blessed with. We do not have a similar celebration in Greece or in Cyprus, where I come from, but I am thankful for what I have and I am sure that there are a lot of other bloggers who share my feelings.
So even if we do not celebrate Thanksgiving, we shall prepare anything we like, something festive. It may be a main dish, a side dish a salad or dessert and alongside the food we shall also be glad, to hear why you are thankful.
For those who are celebrating you may wish to share one of your prized recipes or even decorating ideas for the holiday, or to recommend things that have worked for you, or great tips you’ve gleaned elsewhere.
Let’s all be grateful for what we have and never forget that there are people out there needing our help. This month is about celebrating and being thankful, but, rest assured that we are working on this and have asked Giz, of Equal Opportunity Kitchen, to help on future events and shall let you know soon what we are preparing.»
