A marked reduction in the numbers compared to previous years, World Food Day celebration on Sunday suffered from what has been a fluctuating season and sandwiched between a half and full day strike by members of the Public Workers Union.
There was a display of a limited quantity of fruits and vegetables. The sparseness of the corn on display was very noticeable as they continue to suffer from a disease. The agro-processors came out in their numbers with some very creative products, which were well received by the smaller than usual crowd at the exercise. There was also a creative display of foods and agro-processing items from the sister isle of Petite Martinique.
