In anticipation of World Food Day on October 16, Michael Kors has unveiled a host of exciting initiatives to support the 5th anniversary of Watch Hunger Stop, the brand’s vital, annual campaign to fight global hunger. The brand’s partner in the effort is the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), and all funds raised support WFP’s school meals program. Michael Kors is raising funds by selling limited-edition t-shirts, sunglasses, and watches for the Watch Hunger Stop Campaign.
Michael Kors will continue its partnership with actress, author, entrepreneur and longtime-supporter, Kate Hudson, who will once again lend her talents to support the cause. “There’s something so simple but so deeply important about the work that the World Food Programme does,” says Hudson. “It is not just that [WFP] feeds children—though they do that and it’s incredible. They also work to support families and education and local economies, working towards a bigger picture that enables communities, and ultimately countries, to get back on their feet. I really do believe that if we work together at this, we will see an end to world hunger.”
