Right now, 16 million children are at risk of going hungry - they don't know where their next meal is coming from. The reality is there IS enough food in the world today for everyone to get the nourishment they need for a healthy and productive life. Hunger is a solvable problem. It's something we can do something about, and make a huge impact in a very simple way. I'm running in the Run 10 Feed 10 race to help provide food for undernourished New York children.
Co-founded by Lauren Bush, the FEED Foundation is dedicated to ending world hunger – one child at a time. The Foundation was started to supplement the efforts for our retail partner, FEED Projects, to raise valuable funds and support for the United Nations World Food Programme’s school feeding efforts. It has since grown to encompass school feeding efforts both stateside and abroad and provide aid during natural disasters and humanitarian crises worldwide. As of 2011, the FEED Foundation, in partnership with FEED Projects, has provided 60 million free, nutritious school meals to kids around the globe.
