ABOUT RUN 10 FEED 10:
RUN 10 FEED 10 started in 2012 with the hope of raising money and awareness for the dire hunger problem in America. The concept was a simple one. RUN a 10K and FEED 10 hungry people in your hometown. In 5 years, you’ve helped us to raise enough money to provide 5 million meals to Americans in need. We’re facing the challenge and looking to provide relief to those in need again in 2017; the road to a happy, healthy community starts with you.
After witnessing the effects of hunger firsthand when traveling as a United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) Honorary Spokesperson, Lauren Bush Lauren founded FEED in 2007 with the mission of “Creating Good Products That Help FEED the World.” Since then, FEED has grown into an impact driven lifestyle brand, making products across a variety of categories, from bags to jewelry to home goods. The sale of each FEED product provides direct meal donations to children in need across the globe. Through on the ground partners, FEED has provided more than 95 million meals to-date since 2007.
