Did you know that by just being a bit more careful we could stop world hunger?

 

Hard Truths

  • Worldwide
    • 815 million people in the world don’t get the food they need to live a healthy life (2017 FAO Stats);
    • 66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry across the developing world (World Food Programme);
    • Every $1 spent on malnutrition prevention delivers $16 in economic returns (2016 Global Nutrition Report);
    • Malnutrition in all its forms – from wasting to obesity – directly affects one in three people (2016 Global Nutrition Report);

 

  • United Kingdom
    • There are 8.4 million people  who are struggling to afford to eat;
    • UK households waste around 7.3 million tones of food (worth £13 billions);

 

These statistics are shocking to us as much as to you, we are sure.

The first questions that came to my head were:

Why is not enough being done?

What can I do to help?

 

 

Simply being more careful not to waste any food will go a long way! Next time you are about to throw away food, think twice, is it really rotten/ not consumable? If not, then give it to those who need it most, through a food bank for example. 

 

So how can five ingredients help fight hunger in the United Kingdom?

It is with great honour that we are supporting The Five Ingredients Challenge, by giving away few copies of our print magazine, Issue 1, The Book of London. 

 

If you haven't had a chance to buy one just yet, why not take the chance now?

Hurry up guys, the challenge is on and it will last only until the end of November 2017!

 

The money raised by Entrepreneurs from Westminster Business School will be given to MKTG. They will pass it onto the Soup Kitchen London and provide food to homeless people around the UK.
