Blog Action Day 2011 was yesterday. This year the focus was on food and global hunger.
Do you know that if managed and distributed properly, the world has enough food to feed us all? And yet every year, thousands face hunger and food security is a major global concern.
Here is how twitter verse discussed Blog Action Day and food.

It was mostly about hunger, food distribution and also the importance of eating local. Missing issues- hunger in countries outside Africa, especially in places considered to be “safe” like the US and how climate change affects the situation.
But the mass effort was impressive, thanks to all the participants and organizers.
