Epson has announced that it is sponsoring Onigiri Action 2023 as an official partner. Onigiri Action 2023, which will run throughout October and November, is an initiative of TABLE FOR TWO (TFT), a non-profit organisation dedicated to fighting world hunger.
According to estimates by several United Nations agencies, as many as 783 million people globally faced hunger in 2022. Hunger remains significantly above pre-COVID pandemic levels, with over 122 million more people facing hunger now than in 2019*.
Epson aspires to achieve sustainability and enrich communities through social programs in areas such as environment, society, and economics. The company is also working to redistribute stable economic value and correct gender, regional, and other disparities.
Epson endorses Onigiri Action's commitment to social cooperation and balancingsocial responsibility and economic viability and is proud to be a new sponsor of this social initiative aimed at addressing the growing problem of global hunger.
Under the Onigiri Action scheme, each photo of onigiri, a Japanese rice ball, posted to the campaign website or on social media (Instagram, X [formerly Twitter] and Facebook) with the hashtag #OnigiriAction helps provide five school meals to children in need in Africa and Asia through TFT.
