World Food Day is celebrated every year on October 16th
by the United Nations.
We honor World Food Day by making and enjoying "Onigiri (or “rice ball” in Japanese) "
to make our world a little better.
Onigiri (rice balls) are made with love for someone special.
Let's make Onigiri with love for children around the world, and bring a warm school meal to a child in areas of need.
Let's change the world with Onigiri!
