Reusable bags benefit Rwandan children
Whole Foods Market is selling reusable shopping bags to benefit children victimized in the 1994 Rwandan genocide. The FEED 100 costs $29.99 and helps provide 100 nutritious meals to hungry school children in Rwanda through the United Nation World Food Program’s School Feeding Program, according to a press release.
The FEED 100 reusable bag is made of organic cotton and natural burlap and is a lightweight, fresh white tote perfect for spring and summer that will easily collapse into its base to fit into a handbag.
In 1994, Rwanda lost 800,000 men, women and children to genocide. As a result, the nation’s economy and social structures were decimated, the press release said.
Since 2003, the World Food Program has provided free, nutritious school lunches to Rwanda’s children in 300 schools in the most food-deprived areas.
Each hot, nutrient-rich meal draws boys and girls to school, helps them learn, and may be the only meal they have all day. School attendance has grown from 63 percent to 93 percent, and to help close the educational gender gap, girls with good attendance may receive extra rations to take home to their families.
Whole Foods in Park City is located at 1748 West Redstone Center Drive.
