2 Degrees is now giving in South America.
We are thrilled to announce a new partnership with the World Food Program USA. Established in 1961, The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) is the largest humanitarian organization fighting hunger world wide. Last year, WFP aimed to reach more than 90 million people in more than 70 countries with food assistance. 2 Degrees donations will be made through WFP to school lunch programs in Colombia and Myanmar.

You keep eating, we keep giving. A match made in heaven!
In May, we delivered 11,160 more meals to hungry children in Malawi via our partnership with Partners In Health. More than 75% of people in Malawi live on less than $2 per day. The meals we gave were Ready-to-use Supplementary Foods, prescribed for children with moderate malnutrition. In our efforts to reach children across all levels of the hunger spectrum, we work with our partners to target meals appropriately. Learn more here.
100,000 meal challenge gets underway.
The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee and 2 Degrees have partnered up in a 100,000 meal challenge! 2 Degrees bars will be offered at Unitarian gatherings nationwide in an effort to trigger the donation of 100,000 meals to hungry children. This campaign will also serve as a powerful fundraising tool for the Unitarians. We love these kind of partnerships that benefit all parties involved – most importantly children. If you have ideas for new partnerships, please reach out to us at email@example.com. We’d love to hear from you!
2 Degrees at the National Zoo!
Did you know 2 Degrees bars are now offered in the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington DC? Zoo workers have tough jobs: when’s the last time you convinced a giant panda to take a bath? We’re happy that zoo workers and the zoo goers can now grab a 2 Degrees bar to satisfy their hunger and alleviate the hunger of a child in need. Next time you find yourself in DC checking out the panda pen, remember there’s a 2 Degrees bar around the corner!
Good Press Keeps Rolling In
Our sustainable practices were recently mentioned by the popular blog Mother Jones. We’re very proud to source our meals locally in the countries in which we donate. This strategy helps stimulate local economies and reduces our carbon footprint. Giving is critical. But giving intelligently also matters!
