Act Local, Think Global World Food Day Fundraiser Challenge
At Bountifield, we focus on solutions that drive equitable and sustainable change to generate resilient food systems that work for people and the environment. This includes improving access to postharvest technologies to reduce food loss and to increase the supply of nutritious food available at markets.
But in addition to supporting African farmers and entrepreneurs, there are things that YOU can do right in our own homes and local communities that affect our health, planet and food producers.
That's why, throughout the month of October, we are hosting our World Food Day Fundraiser Challenge!
We CHALLENGE YOU to rethink your own relationship with food and how your habits can impact people and planet. Join us as we RETHINK food systems both locally and globally.
You can participate in 3 EASY steps:
- Pick a food-based challenge from the options below & set a fundraising goal.

She Feeds Africa She Feeds the World
Bountifield brings a unique technology solution that will revolutionize local food markets across Africa, supporting rural communities to more efficiently process, save, and sell more food in local food markets and beyond. In Africa, women are the ones primarily responsible for postharvest processing and food preparation, yet at the rural and smallholder level, they often do so by hand or with rudimentary tools that are inefficient and labor intensive. At Bountifield, our programs create more access to resources and support, particularly for women, emphasizing the strengthening of women’s leadership and contributions to their communities for inclusive and sustainable growth.
