With a single click one can choose which food item the food ordering company will donate to Village SOS Abobo
On the 16th of October is World Food Day – an annual day of action against hunger. Every year on that day, people around the world come together for a common cause: to contribute to the eradication of hunger. It all began in 1945 in Quebec with the creation of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to raise awareness and engage people in the fight against hunger.
Based on FAO’s research, 805 million people, one in nine worldwide, live with chronic hunger. 60% of these are women, while almost 5 million children under the age of 5 die of malnutrition-related causes every year. In honour of this day, food ordering app Hellofood, launches “You Say. We Give”, a week-long campaign to encourage collective efforts and be part of this global movement.
From the 16th to the 22nd of October, hellofood Côte d’Ivoire will be collecting its customers’ wishes. One can choose between 5 stock food items (rice, potatoes, cooking oil, sugar and flour) simply by commenting on the Facebook post. Hellofood will donate 1kg of that on his/her behalf to the Village SOS Abobo. If the post is shared, hellofood will double the donation. So, the more people speak, the more hellofood gives.
With one simple click, Hellofood will donate one kilo of food to the Village SOS Abobo in Côte d’Ivoire. Giving has never been so easy. Join the global movement to end one of the most persistent universal challenges. Be part of the solution and make a tangible difference with hellofood.

World Food Day is the annual day of action against hunger taking place on the 16th of October. It began in 1945 in Quebec and the last 15 years great progresses have been achieved: 40 countries have halved the proportion of people who suffer from hunger; the likelihood of a child dying before age five has also been cut in half, which means about 17,000 children are saved every day; and extreme poverty rates have also been cut in half.
