World Food Day campaign

11th – 16th of October 2021

This World Food Day, we are raising funds for female farmers in sub-Saharan Africa, and raising awareness for the struggles they face. World Food Day highlights the world’s commitment to Zero Hunger by 2030 and mobilises us to take action for those who suffer from hunger.

This October, join our Dig In Women campaign by spreading the word on social media and donating the cost of your dinner. Your donation will support women facing poverty in Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe to build sustainable, profitable farming businesses. With your help, we can ensure that women like Agnes never go hungry again.
