Action Against Hunger and ECHO launch new joint campaign to mark World Food Day.
With World Food Day just a month away, humanitarian organisation Action Against Hunger is launching a new campaign to celebrate how far we have come in the fight against child hunger and to show how food, like music, can move the world.
In partnership with ECHO (the Humanitarian Aid Department of the European Commission), the No Hunger Orchestra (www.nohungerorchestra.org) will culminate in three live and simultaneous music concerts across London, Paris and Madrid on October 13th 2013.
Musicians in each city will play with specially crafted instruments, uniquely made from non-edible food parts, as they bring food and music together to inspire people to join the fight against undernutrition.
In London, St Pancras International will host the free No Hunger Orchestra at 4pm and will be joined by special guests, soul star Bo Saris and prolific choir the Urban Voices Collective. All three European concerts will be streamed online across the world and an exclusive video will be released to mark World Food Day three days later (October 16th 2013).
And it's not just people in the capital cities who can get involved. Action Against Hunger is inviting people from all over the world to be part of the No Hunger Orchestra themselves by making their own instruments at home and joining in with the music.
All instruments will be made with non-edible food parts so there is no waste. Whether it's shaking pistachio shell maracas or banging a pumpkin shell bongo, making instruments can be fun for the whole family and if people record themselves and upload their clips to the website, they could even appear in Action Against Hunger's World Food Day video.
The concerts will mark the first time that Action Against Hunger's three European headquarters have come together for World Food Day. The campaign is financed by ECHO.
