United Nations World Food Programme: ShareTheMeal
Join The World’s First App Against Global Hunger
ShareTheMeal is an initiative of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) – the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger. Each year, WFP reaches more than 86 million people with food assistance in around 83 countries. WFP is 100% voluntarily funded, so every donation counts.
Donations from the ShareTheMeal app support various WFP operations ranging from resilience building and school feeding programmes to providing food assistance in emergencies. Since launching the app in 2015, we have helped provide aid to some of the largest food crises in the world including Yemen, Syria and Nigeria.
Fighting hunger today. Investing in ending hunger for good.
As the world faces a record number of emergencies, the rate of hunger is increasing. Now, more people than ever need lifesaving food assistance. To meet this growing need, the World Food Programme requires additional resources and funding.
In the next 5 years, we have an ambitious goal — to share 800 million meals. To do this, we need to invest in growing our giving community. Here’s how your donation will help:
The largest share of donations — 62% — will be used to directly help the World Food Programme feed people in need. We will invest 28% into fundraising and marketing to grow our community so that we can help even more people. 6% will still be used to help run our organisation — from renting office space to paying salaries. The remaining 4% will continue to help cover payment fees.
As we grow, we’ll be able to cover our costs while increasing the amount that goes directly to hungry families. In line with WFP’s strategic plan, an average of 22% will be spent on fundraising from 2020-2030.
There are 690 million people who do not get enough food to lead a healthy and active life. As the world continues to see an increase in conflict, climate change and economic instability, the rate of hunger is accelerating.
The good news? Hunger is entirely solvable. With US$ 0.80, we can feed one child for a day and invest in helping even more children in need.
