Hosting a FEED Supper to Help End World Hunger

We can all work together to eradicate world hunger.

FEED Projects, co-founded by Lauren Bush Lauren, is an initiative to fight world hunger on behalf of the UN World Food Programme. For the second year, FEED has called on food enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, community members, and other influential individuals to join its FEED Supper table with a goal to raise two-million meals for children and families around the world within one month’s time. This annual FEED Supper fundraising campaign launched on September 16, and runs through October 16, World Food Day. Through individual gatherings, FEED Supper hosts motivate others to make donations that provide meals to those in need.

It is a very creative way to help a very important cause. And, last week, MSLO executive editorial director of decorating, Kevin Sharkey, and I, hosted a FEED Supper at Kevin’s New York City apartment. We invited nearly 50-people for a casual after-work cocktail party. And, in lieu of bringing food or drinks, we urged guests to make contributions as low as $1.10 to our fundraising page - the amount it costs to provide 10-meals. Our group meal goal was set at 25-hundred dollars.

Enjoy our photos, and consider being a FEED Supper host - events can be as small as dinner for two or as large as a company picnic - it’s an easy way we can all help end hunger.
