In honor of Hunger Action Month, we want to share more about FEED and the inspiration behind the totes. Founder Lauren Bush Lauren traveled around the world as a World Food Programme Spokesperson and saw the effects hunger had on children. Inspired by a program that she saw providing school meals, Lauren founded FEED in 2007.
FEED's motto: create good products that help feed the world. These well made bags (the Market Tote stands on it's own) provide a tangible way to fight hunger; each product has a number stopped on it to signify the amount of school meals provided with its purchase. The company is also committed to using environmentally friendly materials as well as working with artisans to provide sustainable livelihoods in underserved populations.
795 million people around the world are affected by hunger. That's about one in nine! It can be hard to imagine where we live but we can make a difference. Click the links below for additional information on steps you can take this month to combat hunger.
