Taylor's Education Group World Food Day





World Hunger Crisis:
Here at Taylor's, we believe strongly in service: not only to our students and our country, but to the world as a whole. Hunger and malnutrition are at the forefront of urgent problems in the world today, especially with the current Somalian crisis. Over a billion people on our earth go hungry every day, and malnutrition plays a role in more than half of all childhood deaths. We believe that this is a severe and urgent problem. More importantly, we believe that all of us are part of the solution.

Thus, Taylor's Education Group (TEG) has pledged to pack and donate 1,000,000 meals through TEG World Food Day, when we will hold a series of Meal Packaging Events at Taylor's University and Taylor's College campuses as well as Sri Garden Schools on 16 October 2011. Each pack consists of 6 meals. Partnered with NGOs such as Stop Hunger Now and Food for the Hungry International, we aim to pack 166,667 packs (or 1,000,000 meals) to be distributed to crisis-burdened areas or school feeding programmes.



About Meal Packaging Events:
KP SL Bertarikh 6hb Sept 2011
No Lesen: A012732
Meal Packaging Events are fun-filled charity events that anyone can engage in, making them fantastic team building or family day events. Food packing lines will be formed by volunteers, with each section specializing in certain packaging activities. Every volunteer is given a specific task to do, which could involve funneling, measuring, sealing, or boxing. Each finished package contains 6 highly nutritious meals containing rice, soy protein, dried vegetables, flavoring and 21 essential vitamins and minerals.

Our target for this event is to actively address the problem of world hunger by having at least 1,000 volunteers pack 1 million meals within 1 day on 16 October 2011. We are also striving to bring the issue of world hunger to the forefront through the media and participants of the event. In addition, we would like to be part of generating continuous successful Meal Packaging events. In the past, the 45 million meals that have been packaged have been received in 76 countries.
