Partners that care
The project was born in 2011, when two caring individuals met, drawn together by their shared belief in how educating children can make the world a better place: Christian Courtin-Clarins and Lauren Bush Lauren.
Clarins and FEED are proud to be supporting the UN’s food-assistance branch: World Food Programme.
Together, we’re helping thousands of children improve their diet and receive an education.

Lauren Bush Lauren:
a woman with conviction.
In 2007 — after returning home from a trip abroad as an honorary student ambassador for the United Nations World Food Programme where she witnessed childhood hunger firsthand — Lauren Bush Lauren founded FEED, a lifestyle brand that makes good products, that do good, with the goal of providing nutritious school meals with every purchase. Her first venture — the “FEED 1” bag — was designed to create a tangible, wearable way to raise awareness of the worldwide childhood hunger crisis and make a difference, by providing 185 school meals with every purchase. To date, FEED has provided over 107 million meals, through on-the-ground giving partners, like the United Nations World Food Programme.
A single meal, a multitude of benefits.
Our children are the future. We must provide them with education, nutrition and health
Financing school meals not only enables us to feed children in need but also to improve school attendance and access to education. Over and above eradicating malnutrition, these meals are also an opportunity for children to learn, play, grow and receive the education they deserve. An entire year of meals and schooling can change a life.
Clarins is supporting future generations through our child welfare initiatives. Our partnership with FEED embodies the key values that are at the heart of Clarins’ mission.
A single meal,
a multitude of benefits.
Financing school meals not only enables us to feed children in need
but also to improve school attendance and access to education.
