Fresh Pod support Unicef on World Food Day

Published: 19 Oct 2015



To help raise awareness of World Food Day, Fresh Pod will donate 20% of each sale of their 12 month kits between Friday 16th October and Friday 30th October to Unicef.  
 
Unicef work in over 190 countries in the world, actively helping hungry and malnourished children and providing 80% of the world's life-saving emergency food.  
 
World Food Day originated in 1979 and celebrates the creation of the 'Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) on 16th October 1945. It is a day of action that highlights the issues of severe hunger and poverty, and encourages supporters to come together to raise awareness and promote affirmative action to assist in finding a solution to this ongoing problem.  
 
The day is supported by over 150 countries, all of whom assist in the fight against chronic hunger and food waste. Hunger kills more people every year than Malaria, Tuberculosis and Aids combined.  
 
Chronic hunger can be stopped with the help of every individual.  
 
A third of the food produced in the world for human consumption - approximately 1.3 billion tons is lost or wasted. In the UK alone on average £480 of food is wasted per year with an estimated 66% being fruit and vegetables.  
 
You can do your bit to help eradicate food waste by purchasing a 12 month supply kit from Fresh Pod.  
 
Fresh Pod is an innovative product that can extend the life of your fruit and vegetables by up to four times as long without reducing taste and quality. It can help you stop unnecessary food waste and sustain a greener footprint. Fresh Pod is non toxic, completely natural and safe to use.  
 
A 12 month kit is £12.99 (including p&p).
