According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, nearly 870 million people — one in eight people across the globe — suffered from chronic undernourishment during the period from 2010 to 2012. Most, 852 million, come from developing countries, while 16 million people aren’t receiving the food they need in developed countries.

In 2006, Lauren Bush Lauren designed a bag to benefit the United Nations World Food Programme’s School Feeding program. That bag was the starting point for her company Feed, which benefits organizations dedicated to fighting hunger. Today, Feed has donated over $6 million and 60 million meals.
