Clarins & FEED

PARTNERS THAT CARE

The project was born in 2011, when two caring individuals met, drawn together by their shared belief in how educating children can make the world a better place: Christian Courtin-Clarins and Lauren Bush Lauren.

Clarins and FEED are proud to be supporting the UN’s food-assistance branch: WFP*.

Together, we’re helping thousands of children improve their diet and receive an education.

Lauren Bush Lauren

Lauren Bush Lauren:
a woman with conviction.

Returning home from a trip abroad as a spokesperson for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) in which she was brought face-to-face with world hunger, Lauren Bush Lauren founded FEED Projects in 2007 with a view to setting up school nutrition programmes. She came up with the idea of creating a product that would raise public awareness of world hunger and set about designing and promoting her FEED 1 bag. The “1” stands for one meal for one school child for one year.

    “My family and I live in Siem Reap Province. I love to eat Korkor Soup because it has lots of vegetables, pumpkin and meat. I love to study Khmer literature. In the future, I want to become a doctor because I could help patients.” - Nok Kimlay, aged 11 (2019) Siem reap, Cambodia

A single meal,
a multitude of benefits.

Financing school meals not only enables us to feed children in need
but also to improve school attendance and access to education.
