Join Knorr And Share A Meal This World Food Day

Be part of a global movement and use #ShareAMealSA locally to donate a meal


At Knorr, we believe that delicious and nutritious food should be within everyone’s reach. That’s why we value our partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme and have launched a social media campaign this year guaranteed to put smiles on faces around the world. The campaign will encourage people across the globe to tweet to donate a meal to a local food charity, enabling EVERYONE to help create a brighter future where nutritious food is more accessible.body 1
