ingarden x ShareTheMeal Charity Gathering
Today is finally the day – our very first charity event will take place in Miami and we can’t wait to spend the evening with our invited guests. We are looking forward to spending a wonderful evening with everyone.
But the focus of this event is something much more important to us:
Our ShareTheMeal Charity Fundraiser!
ShareTheMeal is an initiative of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) – the world’s largest humanitarian organization fighting hunger. ShareTheMeal’s program reaches more than 86 million people with food aid in about 83 countries each year. The whole thing is 100% funded by voluntary donations.
The goal: to end world hunger!
“Hunger is one of the worst violations of human dignity. In a world of plenty, ending hunger is within our grasp. Failure to reach this goal should fill every one of us with shame. The time for making promises is over. It is time to act. It is time to do what we have long promised to do – eliminate hunger from the face of earth.”
– Kofi Anan, Secretary General of the United Nations, at the World Food Summit in 2002 in Rome
A healthy and nutritionally balanced diet should be accessible to everyone in the world. Unfortunately, this is often not the case. Around 690 million people do not have enough to eat, including many children. While one part of the world’s population lives in abundance, other parts suffer from hunger. ingarden feels obliged to make our contribution, as it is one of our goals to work towards a more nutritious and sustainable world.
For this reason, we are partnering with ShareTheMeal to donate meals to a child in need for an entire year for each guest who attends our event!
