World Food Day

Thursday, October 27 2011

A large crowd converged on the Dwight Yorke Stadium in Tobago last week Wednesday to take part in World Food Day celebrations. “Food Prices: From Crisis to Stability” was the theme of this year’s observance.

The stadium car park was transformed into a mini “farming village” for the much anticipated annual agricultural fair/exhibition which formed the nucleus of World Food Day celebrations in Tobago.

Addressing the gathering, Tobago House of Assembly (THA) Secretary of Agriculture/Marine Affairs/Marketing/The Environment, Gary Melville told Tobagonians they should become more pro-active in agricultural food production. He urged them to “plant something” in a bid to boost food security in Tobago and lessen the island’s heavy dependence on imported food.

Melville noted that while Tobago may not have a “raw hunger” problem, the lack of food security and the consequent over-dependence on imported food could threaten such a situation. “There are so many possibilities because of our dependence on so much imported food”, he warned.

Melville outlined a number of initiatives which he said the Division will be undertaking to improve food security through increased agriculture food production.

The exhibition featured a display of a wide variety of produce, including processed products, livestock, horticulture, and other agri-related items.

Cultural and/gospel performances complemented the festivities on each evening of the two-day event which closed last Thursday.
