Donate 1kg of food to support foodpanda’s World Food Week!
For most people in developed countries, being hungry is the uncomfortable feeling you get if you skip lunch. But it’s very different if you’re one of the hundreds of millions who don’t get enough to eat every single day. Being malnourished means you don’t have the energy to do even the simplest tasks. World Food Day is a day of action against hunger. On October 16, people around the world come together to declare their commitment to eradicate hunger. Created in 1945, it is now an annual event observed in almost every country by millions of people.
Do you know, 805 million people, or one in nine worldwide, live with chronic hunger.
During my college days, I have been to 30 Hour Famine Camp to challenge myself against poverty by going hungry for 30 hours. I experienced first-hand the events leading to the poverty trap while battling illiteracy and hunger. It’s not fun being hungry and after the camp ended, I was thankful to be given a lunch pack. It was probably one of the best meal I ever had after being hungry for 30 hours.
In honor of this day, food ordering app foodpanda launches “You Say. We Give”, a week-long campaign to encourage collective efforts and be part of this global movement. Charity food drives are always something which I am passionate about. Because not everyone has got something to eat everyday!
From the 16th to the 22th of October, visit https://www.foodpanda.sg/contents/worldfoodday and select 1 of 5 stock food items (rice, pasta, potatoes, pulses or flour), foodpanda will donate 1kg on their behalf to the programs of Food from the Heart Singapore in your name.
Here’s the kicker: For each time your donation is shared with your Facebook friends, foodpanda will double the donation! The more you speak, the more they give.
Doing good has never been this simple.Join the global movement to end one of the most persistent universal challenges. Make a difference with foodpanda!
