Epson has announced its support for Onigiri Action 2023, a non-profit organisation working to fight world hunger.
According United Nations agencies’ estimates, as many as 783 million people globally faced hunger in 2022. Hunger remains significantly above pre-Covid pandemic levels, with over 122 million more people facing hunger now than in 2019.
Onigiri Action 2023 is an initiative of Table for Two, a global initiative to right food imbalance through a meal-sharing programmes.
Under the Onigiri Action scheme, each photo of onigiri, a Japanese rice ball, posted to the campaign website or on social media (Instagram, X [formerly Twitter] and Facebook) with the hashtag #OnigiriAction helps provide five school meals to children in need in Africa and Asia through TFT.
Epson says it aspires to achieve sustainability and enrich communities through social programmes in areas such as environment, society, and economics. The company also works to redistribute stable economic value and correct gender, regional, and other disparities.
Epson endorses Onigiri Action’s commitment to social cooperation and balancing
social responsibility and economic viability. The company says it takes pride as a new sponsor of this social initiative aimed at addressing the growing problem of global hunger.
