What if we told you that by eating too much this festive season you could help fight world hunger? Yes, you heard it right! This new app Give your Calories turns your over-indulgence into food for those who really need it.
The free app from Action against Hunger uses image recognition and barcode-scanning software to recognize your snack. It displays a preset donation amount based on its calories, which can then be donated via PayPal. It’s that simple!
They say: ‘The money you donate by scanning calorie-laden snacks will be used around the world to benefit those who need food and clean water the most. Action Against Hunger operates in more than 40 countries and helps severely malnourished children get back to a healthy weight and thrive. By providing long-term agriculture support, income opportunities, and access to clean water and sanitation, Action Against Hunger helps vulnerable communities become self-sufficient for the long run.’
Now, where are those mince pies…
