LOUISVILLE, Ky. - There is perhaps no better time to talk about feeding the hungry than around the Sunday dinner table. That's exactly what people in Kentucky and around the country did this week to mark World Food Day.

Oxfam America organized the Sunday Dinner program to get people talking about where food comes from, who cultivates it, and how we can make the food system more just and sustainable. Charlotte Phillips hosted one of the gatherings in Louisville and says the discussion centered on overcoming many challenges.

"People are struggling to make ends meet, even here, to provide for their children. So, we got into a lot of different topics."

Those topics included a growing population, constrained resources and climate change. Phillips says the dinner she hosted featured a diverse menu, with foods from all corners of the globe.

"Different countries from Pakistan to India, to a Mexican dish, so we had a little of everything."

World Food Day was Sunday, but it isn't too late to host a dinner. Today (Oct. 21) is the deadline to order free materials from Oxfam America to help host the dinner and lead the discussion.

Oxfam America says investing in small-scale producers and removing the barriers that limit their productivity is the key to increasing food supplies and fighting hunger across the globe. Another observance, Food Day, is coming up Oct. 24, created by the Center for Science in the Public Interest.
