This World Food Day (October 16), Unilever, through its Foods category and Food Solutions business, is committing to donate one million school meals through the Unilever Foundation to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to help end child hunger by improving the availability and nutritional quality of school meals around the world.
On World Food Day, the Unilever Foundation will be running a social media campaign. For every "like" received on the School Meal Facebook app, endorsed by Unilever's food brand pages (Knorr, Hellman's, Best Foods) the Unilever Foundation will donate one school meal to WFP.
Unilever Food Solutions will also be running ’Buy a meal – we’ll donate a meal‘, a campaign to encourage employees using all restaurants and canteens at Unilever offices and factories around the world to order a special World Food Day dish, inspired by international cuisine. For every purchase of this meal, Unilever Food Solutions will donate one meal to the World Food Programme. Where these canteens are run by Sodexo, Sodexo will also make a donation.
