World Food Day:
October 16, 2018
Speaking of bagels, today is World Food Day, the international day seeking to achieve #ZeroHunger by 2030. Congratulations to former CNN Hero Nicole Lynn Lewis, doing good work as founder of Generation Hope, a DC-based nonprofit that helps families of college students who are experiencing food insecurity by giving them grocery store gift cards, crisis support and holding nutrition workshops. To mark her work, Nicole has been awarded the top prize of $100,000 in ascena’s Jaffe Awards, recognizing organizations dedicated to improving the lives of women and children. Feel free to search Twitter for #ZeroHunger to learn more about today — sorry for the PSA but I think this is a good one to shine a light on as humans.
