For fans of the popular Hunger Games book and film series, 22 November, the premiere date for the latest film, Catching Fire, cannot come soon enough. While you wait, you can help fight hunger thanks to a newly launched website.
After learning the impact of school meals in the fight against hunger for millions of children around the world, pupils across the United Kingdom have joined WFP this year to hold Really Good School Dinners at their schools. The campaign, which is jointly run by WFP with the Children’s Food Trust, has so far raised nearly £34,000 (US$55,000).
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.
