What if sharing your supper with others could feed millions of people around the world?
FEED Projects, an organization founded by Lauren Bush Lauren with the mission to create good products that help FEED the world, has launched a brand new initiative called FEED Supper today at the annual interactive SXSW conference in Austin, TX. Conceived in partnership with Interbrand, FEED has created an experience that presents an opportunity to share food and gratitude while enjoying each other’s company, and remaining mindful of the people in our world who go without.
FEED Supper will kick off Come Together, a FEED initiative that harnesses the power of group giving around the world. On September 16, 2014, the first annual, month-long fundraising event will begin. Around the world, friends and family will join together to create groups with a shared fundraising goal and intention and encourage their peers to host their own suppers as well, building the movement.
Toolkits will be available for purchase that include FEED placemats and menus to remind us all why we Come Together. Participants can continue to give back by donating the amount normally spent on a meal to the FEED Foundation.
One month of worldwide FEED Suppers will culminate in a reveal of the impact FEED has made on World Food Day, October 16, 2014.
Be sure to visit FEED’s website on September 16 to learn more.
