World Food Day - Fighting together against malnutrition
On the occasion of the World Food Day on 16 October, we would like to draw attention to the situation of millions of malnourished children worldwide. For this reason, we are organising a campaign together with restaurants and our volunteer groups in Switzerland.
Although enough food is produced to feed the world’s population, according to WHO, 462 million people suffer from malnutrition, including 52 million children under the age of five. This is caused not only by climate and economic factors, but is also exacerbated by a rise in conflict and violence.
On 16th October, more than 200 restaurants throughout Switzerland will support malnourished children by donating some of their income to our nutrition projects. Join this solidarity action by enjoying a delicious meal in one of the restaurants mentioned below.
