Brown Rice volunteers participated in the WFP Walk the World Osaka 2023.


The sixth annual "WFP Walk the World Osaka 2023" was held on May 27 at Expo '70 Commemorative Park (Suita City, Osaka Prefecture), with Mukogawa Women’s University Brown Rice volunteers participating as volunteers.


The WFP Walk the World is a charity walk organized by the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to end hunger among children in developing countries.


 Brown Rice Volunteers have participated in the event as volunteers to run the event since its inception at the request of the United Nations World Food Programme (UNWFP). Many of the Brown Rice Volunteers also pay a participation fee to take part in the walk as individuals, and together with the management volunteers, they also contribute to the "School Meals Program" through their participation fees.


 Since this year's event was held on a Saturday, some students were unable to participate, but the ones who did, did their best. At the venue, guest speaker Yosihiro Yano, former manager of the Hanshin Tigers baseball team, said, "There are children in the world who do not have enough to eat. Let's walk together to deliver school lunches so that as many of these children as possible can study and play sports. He also sent a message of support to the participants, saying, "Next year, we will make the number of participants as good as those in Yokohama!”


 The WFP Walk the World Osaka 2023 had 1,452 participants (1,374 adults and 78 elementary school students) and raised 1,123,860 yen (enough for about 37462 school lunches).
