Kokoro Care Packages #OnigiriAction event

At Kokoro Care Packages, we believe no child should go without access to a well-balanced meal. While 800 million people go hungry throughout the world, over 2 billion people suffer from obesity and other diet-related health concerns.

How can you help?

From Oct 7th to Nov 20th 2019, post a photo of your onigiri (rice ball) on the TABLE FOR TWO website or on your SNS tagging #OnigiriAction.

For every photo posted, 5 school meals will be provided to a child in need. 

Last year 201,023 #OnigiriAction photos were posted with 1,056,000 school meals being delivered! This gave 5,200 children access to healthy school lunches for 1 year.
