Helping Break the cycle of Hunger - Empty Plate Campaign!
Every 3.6 seconds a person dies of Hunger and 75% of such unfortunates are children.
Yes! There will be one more before you finish reading this sentence. “A sad fact!”,
expressions of many. What if they were your own family members or friends?
If Happiness, Sorrow, Pain, Joy, glory are feelings to share with the
World and give attention to, then Hunger is definitely one that demands immediate Action, Action from all
citizens of the World, for, our own fellow Human Beings are dying!
870 million people in the world do not have enough to eat.( Sources: State of Food
Insecurity in the World, FAO, 2012). Hunger has been killing more people every
year than AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis combined.
There is enough Food available to feed every person on this planet. But the sad News
is no one knows what is to be done.
“Action Speaks louder than Words”, but unfortunately today, Stats speak more louder and Clearer. Period!
A wise man once said, “A lot can change if you decide to change yourself”. For any change to happen in the World it must begin with the Self.
Time and again, lot of people leave food in their plates either because they serve themselves too
much or they dislike the taste. Either of the reasons just lead to wastage of more food and nothing else.
Empty Plate Campaign, an initiative of 36meals Trust, aims to make sure there are empty plates at the end of meals so that no food is wasted.
All you have to do is to follow 3 simple steps;
Step 1:- Make sure there are no leftovers on your plate after your meal on 23rd, 24th Of march.
Step 2:- Take a photo of your empty Plate.
Step 3:- Upload the photo on facebook on www.facebook.com/36meals
on your Twitter account and tweet to @36meals or any other social media channel you are connected to.
You can do it for all 4-6 meals (including both 23rd and 24th of March, 2013) or any one of the meals.
We invite People from the World-over to participate in this revolutionary mission & a massive vision.
– Lets bring the Change!
