The World Food Day-2019 was observed in the district on Wednesday as elsewhere in the country and the globe with a call to achieve food security for the people through increasing production of healthy diets. This year’s theme of the day is “our actions are our future-healthy diets for zero hunger world.” Marking the day, the department of food and department of agriculture extension (DAE) chalked out the elaborate programmes in cooperation with district administration.

In the morning, a rally led by deputy commissioner (DC) was brought out from the premises of District Collectorate Building here and ended at the same venue after parading the main roads of the town.

Later, a discussion meeting was held at the conference room of the DC here on the significance of the day with deputy director (DD) of DAE Dr. SM Ferdous in the chair.
