Observation of World Food Day 2023

“Water is Food, Water is Life. Leave No One Behind.”


“World Food Day” is marked every year on 16th October. World Food Day 2023 celebrated the vital connection between water and food security under the theme "Water is Food, Water is Life, Leave No One Behind." This powerful theme underscored the critical role of water in agriculture, food production, and overall human well-being. It called for global efforts to ensure equitable access to water resources, particularly for vulnerable populations, to eradicate hunger and achieve sustainable development. The aim of the programme was to raise awareness among the students and faculties about sustainable food security by access to clean water for food production, making it a cornerstone of food and nutrition security.. The Post Graduate students and Assistant Professors Mrs. Priyanka Bakshi, Dr. Jyoti and Dr. Vinod Kumar Patil from the Department of Food and Nutrition, Khaja Bandanawaz University, Kalaburagi have marked the awareness programme by providing information via poster presentation and group interactions.


The call was to recognize water as a critical resource for food security and human well-being by addressing water challenges, promoting sustainable agriculture, and ensuring equitable water access. Students were sensitized that they can work towards a future where no one is left behind in the quest for a world without hunger and poverty; together, they can harness the power of water to nourish communities and build a more sustainable and resilient food system for generations to come with special reference to Kalaburagi, Karnataka. They were also educated about various techniques of water harvesting to recharge ground water in their localities. The programme was focused on the world statistics on scarcity of food & nutrition security and with specific emphasis on triple burden in India with over nutrition, micronutrient deficiency and malnutrition.


The students and faculty from Department of Biotechnology, Mathematics, Chemistry, Zoology, Physics, Urdu, Mass Media and Communication actively interacted with the host

students and faculty.
