Chat with food experts on Twitter about alleviating hunger

Hunger affects more than 800 million people worldwide, according to the United Nations' World Food Programme, and one-third of all the food grown every year goes to waste.

Together, we can change that. On World Food Day, Thursday, 16 October, join a conversation on Twitter from 12:00 to 13:00 Chicago time (UTC-5), using the hashtag #RotaryHunger. During the chat, food experts will talk about ways to alleviate hunger and malnutrition in your community and around the world.

Rotary (@Rotary) will moderate the chat, and experts from organizations including Rotary First Harvest (@RFHarvest), the Global FoodBanking Network (@FoodBanking), and the Food Plant Solutions Rotarian Action Group (@foodplants), will share ideas and answer your questions.

How to participate

It's easy to add your voice: Follow the #RotaryHunger hashtag with Twitter or use a tool like TweetChat. And in your own tweets, use the hashtag #RotaryHunger.

In addition to connecting you with people who are involved or want to become involved with food- and hunger-related projects, the chat will give you tips and ideas from the experts. Follow @Rotary to stay informed about World Food Day and other opportunities to raise awareness and take action to improve our communities.
