World Food Day: 3 little actions, 1 big impact.

wfp-wfd[Update - 15 Oct.] With a day left, have you helped feed a child by taking three simple action on WFP's World Food Day campaign website? The social media driven campaign is an awareness-raising drive centred around a viral video about a girl named Molly who lives in Nairobi's Mathare slum. Like more than 20 million other children around the world, Molly is getting an education and the nutrition she needs to grow and learn with the help of WFP's school meals programme.

With three simple actions, you can ensure a child like Molly gets a nutritious meal in school. Who's Molly? She's an amazing young girl with an amazing story. Watch her video below to get started.

For every person who watches the video and takes a short quiz about Molly's life, a generous donor will provide a child like her with a meal in school. You can help reach the campaign's goal of raising 50,000 meals or more, for World Food Day, by visiting the campaign page.

You can also consider taking your support one step further by donating $5 to give a child school meals for a month!
