The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, who devised World Food Day in 1979, outlines the holiday as one in which we:
• encourage attention to agricultural food production and to stimulate national, bilateral, multilateral and non-governmental efforts to this end;
• encourage economic and technical cooperation among developing countries;
• encourage the participation of rural people, particularly women and the least privileged categories, in decisions and activities influencing their living conditions;
• heighten public awareness of the problem of hunger in the world;
• promote the transfer of technologies to the developing world; and
• strengthen international and national solidarity in the struggle against hunger, malnutrition and poverty and draw attention to achievements in food and agricultural development.
That’s a pretty big order to fill, but GrubHub is here to help. For every order placed today through 11:59pm, GrubHub will make a donation to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign, which focuses on ending childhood hunger here in the United States:
So here’s how it works. We’ll be “rounding the change” on every order. Say you order a pad thai lunch that totals $20.07, we’ll then round up another $.93 on our end – we’ll then combine that with everyone else’s rounded change for the day and make one big donation. Yay!
Who wants to cook on a Tuesday night, anyway! Take it easy, order from GrubHub and help ensure that hungry kids across the country will have enough to eat.
