On this World Food Day, please remember those around the world who may not be able to fill their stomachs as well as the Five Contemplations before a meal:

1. This food is the due to the hard work of many and a product of our home, the Earth.

2. Eating with mindfulness and proper conduct so as to be worthy to receive it.

3. Being aware of greed and learning to eat with moderation.

4. Eating what is only necessary and reduce the suffering of living beings and preserve our environment.

5. Accepting this food as cultivation to realize the Way and to help relieve the suffering of others.
