Students against Hunger: the Blog
Not since World War II has mankind seen the level of human suffering as in Syria today. On May 23-24, the United Nations will convene the first-ever World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, Turkey, to address what has been deemed the greatest humanitarian crisis of our lifetime and to develop a global call to action on crises around the world.
“There is no food security without peace and no peace without food,” WFP Executive Director Ertharin Cousin told graduate students gathered at Georgetown University on 12 April. The event, Zero Hunger: A Foundation for Global Stability and Prosperity, was part of the university’s Global Futures initiative that engages the public sector, business and civil society in international affairs.
Share the Meal, the app founded by WFP, is making waves. Lauded by media outlets from MTV to BuzzFeed to Vice for taking an innovative approach to solving hunger and named by Google as one of the best apps of 2015, Share the Meal recently won an Interactive Innovation Award at the 2016 South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas.

For the second year running, students from the London School of Economics’ UN Society gave a voice to the hungry on their campus by organising a Fill the Cup Week around World Food Day.
On World Food Day, 204 students at the New School in Rome lined up for lunch. Instead of their regular meals, each student sat down with a plate of rice. The money they saved by eating only rice went to WFP's School Feeding Programme.
