“World Food Day” A Public Service Message from Student Affairs Department
World Food Day is observed annually on 16 October to highlight the millions of people worldwide who cannot afford a healthy diet and the need for regular access to nutritious food. We need to build a sustainable world where everyone, everywhere has regular access to enough nutritious food. Many of us have a very bad habit of food waste. Buying more food than we need, letting fruits and vegetables spoil at home or taking larger portions than we can eat. Let this be an opportunity to advise you all that “Do Not Waste food. Let this be a day and onwards to also spread the word ‘Not To Waste Food”. Let’s be responsible people.
خوراک کا عالمی دن ہر سال 16 اکتوبر کو منایا جاتا ہے. حالیہ” سیلاب سے آنے والی تباہی کو مد نظر رکھتے ہوئے ہمیں خوراک کے بے جا ضیاع سے بچنا ہے تاکہ ہر شخص کے لئے خوراک کی مسلسل فراہمی کو یقینی بنایا جا سکے “۔
