World Food Day October 16
by Beth Kaiserman

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) celebrates its founding in 1945 every year on October 16, World Food Day, with events organized in 150 countries worldwide promoting awareness and action for hunger relief and food security. 

The goal? Achieve Zero Hunger by 2030 – an idea we can get behind and promote in any way possible.

This means addressing global challenges in both small and large ways – tackling climate change, migration and displacement and feeding the world’s ever increasing population.

We’re providing snacks for Food Tank’s ‘Dance for Puerto Rico’ fundraising event on Monday, which also commemorates World Food Day.

Our cafés will feature specials Monday or Tuesday highlighting full utilization of ingredients.


Orphan Vegetable Minestrone with parmesan rind, tomato and vegetable trimmings at Mae Mae Café


Crispy Rice Cakes with end cuts of veggies at Garden Court Café

Bruised Banana Bread from blemished and older bananas at Roth Bar at Hauser & Wirth

Gumbo Des Herbes with beet greens, carrot tops, and the less-than-perfect outer leaves of head lettuces and cabbages at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola

Creamy Root Vegetable Scrap Stew with root vegetable ends and trimmings, seasoned with herbs at Café at Wave Hill
