For the second year running, students from the London School of Economics’ UN Society gave a voice to the hungry on their campus by organising a Fill the Cup Week around World Food Day. WFP Volunteer Barney Iley-Williamson went to the event and met some of its organizers. Together, these students raised enough money to feed almost 6,000 children through WFP’s school meals programme!
On World Food Day, 204 students at the New School in Rome lined up for lunch. Instead of their regular meals, each student sat down with a plate of rice. The money they saved by eating only rice went to WFP's School Feeding Programme. Check out the video below to see how one school changed one meal and changed lives.
