Our actions are our future”. It also marks FAO’s 75th Anniversary, during an exceptional time when many countries are dealing with the widespread effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Join FAO in thanking and celebrating food heroes – from farmers and food chain workers to drivers, shop assistants and food bank representatives. Download the event programme and register here:
