World Food Day is celebrated annually on October 16 to commemorate the founding of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). It promotes worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure healthy diets for all. According to the FAO, more than 3 billion people (almost 40 percent of the world’s population) cannot afford a healthy diet.
“We’re proud to partner with United and Visa to provide cardmembers with a rewarding way to support efforts to address the hunger crisis in the U.S. and across the world,” said Laurinda Rainey, General Manager of United Co-Brand Cards at Chase. “Access to nutritious food is a key component of a healthy life that everyone should enjoy, and World Food Day is an opportunity for us to highlight the critical work of these charities focused on this noble effort.”
“This World Food Day, we’re encouraging our cardmembers to support three non-profits that we regularly work with to help provide relief for those who suffer from hunger across the globe,” said Suzi Cabo, United’s managing director, global community engagement.
“We look forward to collaborating with Chase and Visa to offer our valued United Visa Cardmembers a unique opportunity to earn rewards and support organizations providing direct aid to those impacted the hardest by the hunger crisis.”
"The global pandemic has impacted individuals, communities, and businesses globally in devastating ways, including affecting their economic livelihoods,” said Beth Hurvitz, SVP and Global Head of Social Impact at Visa. "Visa is proud to join with United and Chase to support this campaign, which will help support the global fight to end hunger."
