Mealshare, SkipTheDishes begin campaign

Mealshare, an organization that works to counter food insecurity, has begun a campaign in collaboration with food delivery service SkipTheDishes called “Food for Thought.” The campaign, now in its second year, encourages youth to take action on World Hunger Day on May 28. The promotion makes use of a resource package suggesting activities for children and conversation topics for classrooms and families. For each completed activity that is submitted, SkipTheDishes will donate five meals to children in need. The company will also donate $25,000 to Mealshare. The package can be downloaded and completed activities uploaded at <>. The campaign will run until June 10.

“Food insecurity continues to be a major issue for individuals and families across the world and here at home,” said Julia Hunter, executive director at Mealshare. “That's why our ‘Food for Thought’ campaign in partnership with SkipTheDishes is vital to spark conversations and empower the younger generation to learn about the intersectionalities of systemic issues we face, including hunger and poverty.”
