Latest figures released suggest that a staggering one in nine of the world’s population is undernourished. Although it’s hard to imagine, around 800 million people worldwide are living in chronic hunger. TryMyKitchen has joined forces with ‘World Hunger Day’ launching an impressive campaign to raise additional awareness and funding between 13th to 28th May.
TryMyKitchen is running a sweepstake system, one lucky winner will win a London cooking class. For every 10 entries made, TryMyKitchen will be donating £1 towards the Hunger Project. The significance of their £1 donation correlates with the amount of people living on £1 or less, per day around the world. TryMyKitchen will also be donating £5 to The Hunger Project UK, for every booking made between 13th to 28th May.
The Hunger Project is a non-profit organisation, aimed to help end world hunger. Focusing on over 17,000 communities and 12 countries, they seek to empower and develop sustainable solutions for those specifically living on less than £1, to try and end their poverty and hunger.
For those interesting in making a difference and helping beat world hunger, trymykitchen.com have put together a simple 3 step process:
1) Enter their sweepstake to win a London cooking class and they will donate £1 for every 10 entries
2) Book a London cooking class on TryMyKitchen.com and they will instantly donate £5
3) Donate as much as you wish directly to The Hunger Project, or alternatively get involved with their hunger project on social media @WorldHungerDay #WorldHungerDay
More information on World Hunger Day:
Over the last 20 years, significant improvements have been made in world poverty. Since 1990 those living in extreme poverty have been cut in half. This means, each day 17000 less children (per day) are dying. Improved awareness and actions taken by organisations like The Hunger Project, have allowed the education and development needed to make such changes.

There is still a long way to go though. With over 800 million living in poverty around the world, The Hunger Project aims to end hunger and poverty by 2030. They believe this can be achieved by improving education, specifically for girls and supporting women and their families. Thus leading to healthier families, with more children attending school. With better education and improved agricultural productivity, this in turn leads to improved income and wealth. All this can only be achieved though, by improved communication in wealthier countries. Meaning a change of how their own people and leading governments act too.
