A Day in Her Food
Can you live 3 days “in the food” of women living in chronic hunger, to empower others to end hunger in their communities?
A Day in Her Food is an experiential food challenge campaign from The Hunger Project.
Can you live “in the food” of our women partners, women who are living in chronic hunger in Senegal, Bangladesh and Peru?
A food challenge can be a great way for us to try to understand, to a small extent, what life might be like for the women we support.
Challengers follow recipes from women, share their experiences, and fundraise to support our work empowering women to end hunger for good in their communities.
60% of the world’s hungry are women and girls. But women and girls are the key to ending hunger. When a woman is unleashed, empowered and supported, everyone benefits: communities become more resilient, families are healthier, more children go to school, incomes increase, and agricultural productivity improves.
Take on the challenge
• Choose three days
Choose three consecutive days and on each day follow the recipes of women from Peru, Senegal and Bangladesh.
