FEED & CLARINS

A partnership of the heart.

The project was born in 2011, when two individuals, Christian Courtin-Clarins and Lauren Bush Lauren met; drawn together by their shared belief in how educating children can make the world a better place.

Clarins and FEED are proud to be supporting the UN’s food-assistance branch, World Food Programme*.

Together, we’re helping thousands of children improve their diet and receive an education.*WFP

Lauren Bush Lauren:
a woman with commitment.

Returning home from a trip abroad as a spokesperson for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) in which she was brought face-to-face with world hunger, Lauren Bush Lauren founded FEED Projects in 2007 with a view to set up school nutrition programmes. She came up with the idea of creating a product that would raise public awareness of world hunger and set about designing and promoting her FEED 1 bag. The '1' stands for one meal for one school child for one year.

Why FEED & Clarins?

Our children are the future. We owe it to them to provide them with education, nutrition and health.

A single meal, a multitude of benefits.

Financing school meals not only enables us to feed children in need but also to improve school attendance and access to education. Over and above eradicating malnutrition, these meals are also an opportunity for children to learn, play, grow and receive the education they deserve. An entire year of meals and schooling can change a life. Studies have proven that a balanced meal doubles a child’s concentration at school and improves academic performance.
