FEED Projects

FEED Projects

FEED Projects was started in 2007 by Lauren Bush, an honorary spokesperson for the United Nations World Food Program, and Ellen Gustafson, a former United Nations Communications Officer. FEED Projects sells FEED bags and a portion of each bag is donated to the United Nations World Food Programm to feed children around the world.

Lauren Bush came up with the idea of a FEED bag while in college at Princeton University. Intended as a fundraiser for the UN World Food Program, FEED Projects has grown rapidly in its year of existence. FEED bags have been supported by many different celebrities including Marcia Cross and Elizabeth Berkley.

Availability

Currently, there are two FEED bags available for purchase in the United States. The FEED 1 bag provides one child with a year's worth of meals and the FEED 100 bag provides 100 meals to school children in Rwanda. The FEED 100 bag is available at Whole Foods Market stores. FEED Projects and Whole Foods hope to sell enough bags to fund WFP's entire operation in Rwanda for the year 2008.
