Street foods: the way forward for better food security and nutrition
An online discussion to exchange views on street food vending, share lessons learnt and new perspectives to improve the safety, quality and nutritional value of street food is starting today 26 September and will run for three weeks through the Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition of FAO, a community of practitioners currently reaching more than 3200 members from across the world’s five continents.
Experiences from Asian countries show how street foods are increasingly gaining importance to attain food security. FAO projects in Bangladesh have demonstrated the need for technical support and training to improve street food vendors’ food hygiene knowledge and practices as part of the institutionalization of healthy street food systems (read the Policy Brief on street food).
Given the relevance of the topic for food security in Bangladesh, we are glad to invite you to exchange of ideas and e-meet others active on this issue to help formulate ideas for future interventions.
