Teens Supporting Food Bank in Japan

The Shonan Shirayuri BWB Club students decided to support their local food bank this school year as their Local Action Project. They researched the situation of food loss and food needs in Japan and found that while 60% of food is lost in the process of manufacturing and farming, one in seven Japanese children is facing hunger due to poverty. Although many food banks have been established to mitigate the problem, COVID-19 has dramatically impacted the supply. Through this service project of volunteering at the food bank, the BWB Shonan Shirayuri Club members helped poor families put food on the table, and learned how to reduce food waste. (SDG1- No Hunger, SDG2- No Poverty, SDG3- Good Health & Well-being, SDG17- Partnerships for the Goals)

BWB Clubs around the world, led by student leaders, have taken on issues that THEY want to address and share their solutions with teens across borders. Throughout the year, these young changemakers rolled up their sleeves, made contacts and content, and planted seeds of trees and goodwill. BWB Clubs' Local Action Projects have brought us closer to the Global Goals, one action and one friend at a time.

We would like to invite you to cast your vote for your favorite BWB Club. The best club, elected by your votes and evaluated by their participation in the BWB global connections throughout the year, will receive the 2024-2025 Club Scholarship. Please cast your vote by "liking" the club's endeavor in the People's Choice Award tab. Students have worked hard on their Year-End Report videos, so we encourage you to watch them all. You are welcome to vote for more than one club:
