In celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations and World Food Day, the Department of Agriculture et al has recognized the TDC Home and Building Depots with a Food Heroes Award.
The accolade represents the companies’ ongoing efforts to actively support the local farming community by providing a wide range of agricultural inputs, technical assistance, training, and the annual Farmers Appreciation Month.
According to the FAO website, “behind our food, there is always someone who produced, planted, harvested, fished or transported it. We take the opportunity to thank these #FoodHeroes who, no matter the circumstances, continue to provide food to their communities and beyond helping to grow, nourish and sustain our world.”
The presentation took place on Thursday 15th October 2020, at the Department of Agriculture’s conference room, as one of the activities to mark the celebration of World Food Day.
