A multilingual online TV channel is being launched ahead of World Food Day 2011 by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

The move is part of a global anti-hunger campaign organized by the agency to educate people on the issue and get them involved in ending the scourge.

FAO is also asking people to give up food for 24 hours on Saturday to connect with those suffering from chronic hunger.

Sharon Lee Cowan of FAO spoke to Jocelyne Sambira about the various activities organized around the event.
