Each month we feature a food focused charity project. We believe in giving back to the community and doing that for others as we would hope someone would do for us.
This month we would like to bring special attention to SHARE THE MEAL.
Share the Meal is the world’s first app against global hunger
ShareTheMeal is an initiative of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) - the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger. Each year, WFP reaches more than 86 million people with food assistance in around 83 countries. WFP is 100% voluntarily funded, so every donation counts. WFP’s administrative costs are among the lowest in the non-profit sector – with 90% of donations going directly to WFP operations that are building a world with zero hunger. Donations from the ShareTheMeal app support various WFP operations ranging from resilience building and school feeding programmes to providing food assistance in emergencies. Since launching the app in 2015, ShareTheMeal have helped provide aid to some of the largest food crises in the world including Yemen, Syria and Nigeria.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Simple - you just download the App and you are ready to go. The app is super easy to navigate and some great information on some of their gold and projects. Giving is very easy too - after creating a profile you can give directly using the app (it even supports Apple Pay so giving has never been easier). You can contribute to a team goal or just individually. You can join and set up teams and create challenges. Click here to find out more about teams and challenges.
You can also give monthly - Invest in a world without hunger by joining The Table. This is Share the Meals monthly giving community. You can be virtually connected with a unique family each month and learn the impact of your shared meals through personalised updates and exclusive stories.
How does this work?
Using SCOPE, WFP's beneficiary management tool, members are paired with a unique family each month via real-time data. Monthly donors will directly support families with cash assistance, so that they can purchase the food that best suits their family’s needs.
When you join The Table, your monthly donation will help Rohingya refugee families in Bangladesh, and families in Nigeria, South Sudan, Sudan and Syria. By sharing your meal each month, you are providing these families in need with much needed nutrition. You are investing in a world without hunger.
