Mindful Chef, the health-focused food box company backed by sports stars including Victoria Pendleton CBE, Sir Andy Murray and Will Greenwood MBE, has donated over 100,000 meals in support of One Feeds Two, since partnering with the charity in July.
For every food box purchased by a Mindful Chef customer, a nutritious school meal has been donated to a child living in poverty. Mindful Chef is planning to donate 1,000,000 meals by the end of 2018.
One Feeds Two was founded in 2013 by JP Campbell, who paired with established grassroots feeding programs in the developing world.
The charity’s simple principle is that by providing a nutritious school meal, children in some of the world’s poorest countries won’t go hungry, will have one more reason to attend school and as a result have a greater chance in improving their prospects in life.
By highlighting how something so simple can make such a big difference, the charity aims to make giving part of everyday living.
Myles Hopper, co-founder of Mindful Chef, said, “We wanted to work with One Feeds Two as it’s a really effective way of using our business to help children in need.
'Over 60 million children miss out on school every single day due to hunger, which is simply unacceptable. Partnering with One Feeds Two allows us and our customers to help in some small way, but more importantly, on a regular basis.
'We’re incredibly proud of the Mindful Chef community, who have helped us donate over 100,000 meals already. We encourage more companies to get involved.”
JP Campbell, co-founder of One Feeds Two, added, “We are delighted to be working with Mindful Chef and there is real symmetry in our values. The impact of the school meals is transformative for the children receiving them and will change lives.
'We are excited by the scale of Mindful Chef’s ambition and are incredibly excited about what our partnership can achieve.”
