World food day activities

Davao City will play host at the 3-day National Organic Conference starting today as part of the week-long activities marking World Food Day tomorrow.

In addition to the activities listed in this flyer, the Alternate Forum for Research in Mindanao together with the Task Force Food Sovereignty Mindanao will hold panel discussions on Friday on The Food Crisis: Regional Impacts, Roots and Responses at the Mindanao Training and Resource Center.

A battery of speakers from farmers, civil society groups, academe and government will tackle the food situation in Mindanao, the country’s food basket, but where hunger and poverty are prevalent.

I will be one of the reactors.
