Table for two session

(WEF)The World Economic Forums "Table for Two" initiative simultaneously targets hunger in the developing world and obesity in developed countries."Every time someone eats a healthy meal at participating company cafeterias, restaurants and events, 20 cents is donated to fund a healthy school meal in developing countries," said James Kondo, President and Vice-Chairman, Health Policy Institute in Japan and Young Global Leader. The aim is to spread the initiative worldwide.

With one billion people suffering from hunger and another billion suffering from obesity, the "Table for Two" initiative of the Young Global Leaders of the World Economic Forum aims to tackle both, at the same time.
