A Day In Her Food is an experiential food campaign from The Hunger Project UK. It raises awareness about malnutrition and hunger by celebrating women and mothers' adaptability in ensuring their loved ones have nutritious meals despite having limited access to food supplies. By fundraising through the A Day In Her Food Challenge you could be supporting communities in diversifying their nutritional intake.

The A Day In Her Food Challenge can last up to a week, where as an individual or team, you are challenged to create nutritious meals across a week using 3-6 ingredients per day. You can either choose your ingredients from our programme country menus or from your mamma's kitchen. Before you start the challenge, speak to the women and mothers in your life to collect as much information as you can on their techniques and adaptable recipes. Don't forget to record your recipes so you can share it with others around the world.

By taking on the challenge, you will be raising awareness about the impacts of malnutrition, promoting healthy eating, managing your food waste and celebrating the women in your lives who are already change makers.
