Michael Kors, Lupita Nyong’o and the World Food Programme (WFP) are together again.
The duo brought their Watch Hunger Stop initiative to the United Nations Headquarters in New York City on Monday hoping to take the next step towards ending hunger worldwide.
During their conversation, moderated by author Cleo Wade, Kors, Nyong’o and WFP’s Antonella D’Aprile focused on the role school meals play in the fight against world hunger.
“There is that adage, charity begins at home, and I was raised with that philosophy,” Academy Award-winning Nyong’o said. “I was also raised to consider philanthropy my human responsibility.”
She added, “It sets the example for everyone else – you can show up, you can help, you can start from where you’re at.”
Meanwhile, Kors explained, “This is a solvable problem.”
“There is enough food. We have to make noise, we have to let people know they can get involved and make a difference,” the designer added. “The reality is that education and nutrition, hand in hand, is an incredible win-win.”
