I was watching TV last night and at the end of a typical Pizza Hut commercial featuring cheese in their crust, there was a different ending that caught my attention. Pizza Hut is supporting the movement to end world hunger by supporting the World Food Program through their Friends organization.
Going to the Pizza Hut website today, on their home page, there was a link to the World Hunger 2008 effort with the tag that $1 feeds 4 children. The WFP Friends site states, “World Hunger Relief gives a voice to the silent crisis of hunger by generating awareness among millions of people across the globe. Join Yum! Brands and its 35,000 restaurants worldwide in the movement to end world hunger. By donating to Friends of the World Food Program, you provide a basic necessity for life and hope to the world’s hungry. Give today.” The site offers the option of making a one-time donation or donations over time.
The Friends site gives a lot of data about world hunger and describes the various programs offered by the organization. Check it out!
