Outstanding Mobile Contribution to the UN SDGs
World Food Programme for ShareTheMeal
ShareTheMeal is a crowdfunding app (iOS, Android) to fight global hunger through the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP). Launched globally in November 2015, ShareTheMeal sought to establish the first truly mobile non-profit fundraising platform, enabling people to “share the(ir) meals” with those suffering from severe hunger. With a tap on their smartphones, users can donate $0.50, which is the global average cost of feeding one child for one day. To date over 10 million meals have been shared via the app by over 750,000 users.
