World Hunger Relief is the world’s largest private sector hunger relief effort, spanning 110 countries, 37,000 KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Long John Silver’s and A&W All-American Food restaurants and more than one million employees. The campaign raises awareness, volunteerism and funds for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and other hunger relief agencies.
WFP Ambassador and multi-Grammy Award winner Christina Aguilera is lending her powerful voice as the global spokesperson for World Hunger Relief for the second year.
Aguilera raises awareness of the hunger issue by appearing in new World Hunger Relief restaurant posters, including a never-seen-before photo of her in Haiti, with the quote, “Together, we have the power to save lives and go from hunger to hope”. Aguilera also appears in a global PSA where the multi-Grammy Award winning pop superstar sings Beautiful to raise money for hunger relief as well as online efforts, including the campaign’s website, FromHungertoHope.com. The campaign can also be found at www.facebook.com/WorldHungerRelief and on Twitter at www.twitter.com/WldHungerRelief.
FromHungertoHope.com includes an interactive sliding scale feature that calculates the number of children fed as a result of your generosity. With $1 feeding 4 children, donors have a great opportunity to make a huge difference in the lives of many children. For example, a $5 and $10 donation feed 20 and 40 children, respectively. Donations collected will make a huge impact on the lives of children suffering from hunger. The campaign’s website also features an online store with merchandise ranging from the very popular Itzy Ritzy bags to World Hunger Relief flash drive wristbands. Proceeds from your purchase will go directly to those in need of hunger relief. Please visit the store and make a purchase!
There are approximately 1 billion hungry people around the world today. Hunger and malnutrition are the number one risk to health worldwide — greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Among the key causes of hunger are natural disasters, conflict, poverty, poor agricultural infrastructure and over-exploitation of the environment. Recently, financial and economic crises have pushed more people into hunger.
In the past three years, World Hunger Relief has raised nearly $60 million for WFP and other hunger relief organizations and is helping to provide approximately 250 million meals, saving the lives of millions of people in remote corners of the world. More than 1 million of the Yum! Brands’ employees, franchisees and their families have volunteered more than 15 million hours to aid hunger relief efforts in communities worldwide. Earlier this year, WFP named Yum! Brands Private Sector Partner of the Year for the Company’s global effort.
For more than ten years, Yum! has also donated more than $60 million of prepared food annually to the underprivileged in the United States. Since Yum! Brands went public in 1997, it has donated nearly $550 million of its food to hunger relief agencies in the U.S.
