BENEFITING: GLOBAL INTERFAITH PARTNERSHIP INC EVENT DATE: October 16 to November 28 (World Food Day through Giving Tuesday)
THE STORY: When Global Interfaith Partnership started its Umoja Project in Chulaimbo, Kenya, teachers and guardians there identified hunger as the primary problem affecting students’ attendance and academic performance. Since 2008 we’ve had a school lunch program feeding 3,200 students in 18 schools, ensuring that each child receives one nutritious meal a day. The #FoodForThought Challenge runs October 16 – November 28, 2017, during which we're asking groups to raise $1,000 each to contribute to our $30,000 goal.
Would you and your friends raise $1,000 to provide a daily school lunch to 40 Kenyan children? Each board member has committed to raise $2,000 each to help support our large goal this year. Follow the #FoodForThought conversation online and join the challenge! We’ll provide all you need to get started. You gather your friends!
