There’s a new and fun way to get involved in fighting hunger. The just-released Ending Hunger Challenge Badge seeks to get Girl Scout troops, students, youth groups and others involved in learning more about hunger issues and taking action to help. It was developed by YUNGA, in collaboration with other agencies, including WFP.
What does hunger mean to you? This question can mean a number of things to a number of different people, depending on geography, socioeconomic status and more. Nerys Udy, a student in New Zealand, presents her take in an essay about poverty in Southern Africa.
In many parts of the world, a meal is no guarantee day to day—and neither is the opportunity for education. However, WFP school meals are both feeding students in the classrooms who may not otherwise have food and inspiring parents to send their children to school.
We know students want help WFP fight hunger, but we also know donating money isn’t always realistic. Luckily, WFP has several ways to help fight hunger that don’t cost anything.
