Kate Hudson Named Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations World Food Programme

Dubai, UAE, November 12, 2018:  Golden Globe winning actress, author and entrepreneur Kate Hudson was today appointed as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP). The Romebased humanitarian agency provides food assistance to more than 90 million people in more than 80 countries.  

Hudson’s appointment as a WFP Goodwill Ambassador will be celebrated during a special ceremony hosted by Michael Kors on 7 November in Los Angeles, California. 

With a career spanning more than 25 years, Kate Hudson is a role model both on and off-screen. She has championed WFP’s mission since 2015 when she first joined Michael Kors’ Watch Hunger Stop campaign. She has lent her talents to advocate for the global fight against hunger through this campaign that raises funds for WFP’s school meals programme. 

 “As a mother, I understand the vital importance proper food and nutrition play in the life of a child,” said Hudson. “The work of the World Food Programme is so much more than just feeding people, it’s about strengthening families, rebuilding communities, and ensuring everyone, everywhere has access to the food they need to not only survive, but thrive. After seeing their work first-hand, I’m sure that if we can get more people involved in this movement we really can move closer to a world with Zero Hunger.” 

Through her involvement with the Watch Hunger Stop campaign, Kate Hudson visited several elementary schools in rural Cambodia supported by WFP’s school feeding programme and met with local family farmers who grow the ingredients for the school lunches. 

“Kate’s incredible passion and commitment to speaking up on behalf of the hungry around the world is an inspiration to all of us,” said David Beasley, Executive Director of the World Food Programme. “We are honored to welcome Kate in her new role as our Goodwill Ambassador, as she helps us advocate for those we serve around the world.” 

In her role as WFP Goodwill Ambassador, Hudson will lend her voice to speak up on behalf of those 821 million people who go to sleep hungry every night. In addition, she will use her platforms to showcase WFP’s work and engage her millions of supporters in advocating for a Zero Hunger world.
