United Nations World Food Day

This year Joint Council is participating in the United Nations World Food Day on October 16, 2012. As part of our contribution and desire to raise awareness of worldwide hunger and nutrition, Joint Council is designing and distributing placemats, with an international food theme. We would like to personalize the placemats by asking children to describe the food of the country from which they were adopted: anything from food facts, trivia, or even favorite dish of their native country. This will not only raise awareness of international hunger and proper nutrition, but also make the project personal by showcasing some of the adopted children we advocate for.

If you could pass this request along, and send any response with the age and country of the child noted to we would greatly appreciate it. We would ask for all response by August 15, 2012.

Also, if you have families who are interested in participating or getting involved, World Food Day is offering a poster contest for children ages 5 to 17. The deadline for the poster is September 30, 2012. To view the details, click here.

Thank you for your participation and help in advance.
