Share The Meal




The World food program knows that, by reaching just the classic donation audiences they will NOT be able to meet their ambitious goal of achieving ZERO WORLD HUNGER in our lifetime. So ShareTheMeal has the challenge of reaching a new audience in a new way,  increasing the frequency of donations and maximize app installs. Above all, staying relevant to our main audience, Millennials, so that WFP’s vision, of ending world hunger, can become reality.




How do you increase the frequency of donations, maximize app installs and stay relevant to our main audience?  If you think about it, it is simple:


1. The younger generations, more and more use their cameras to express themselves.

2. People love to show off gorgeous food pictures.

3. #Food alone has over 254 Million posts.


The ShareTheMeal team, in collaboration with Facebook's Creative Shop and the young creatives from the Creative Shop EMEA Miami Ad School Lab, developed the idea: "CAMERA GIVING: ShareTheMeal for real" to make peopls share really count. Now even when someone is showing off, they can do good by making a donation alongside their post. The story here, is about going beyond just doing an amazing mobile campaign. It is about actually changing your product, by leveraging insights from social media platforms to achieve greater impact and become newsworthy again. Based on that, ShareTheMeal became a camera first app and stayed relevant to their audiences by launching "CAMERA GIVING" with an awareness campaign on August 19th, World Humanitarian & Photography day, followed up by app install and re-engagement campaigns targeted to custom audiences overlapping donation intent, food and photography interests. And the results speak for itself:


- Over 4 Million meals (and counting) shared so far.

- 40% overall growth in donations.

- The video “A recipe of nothing” got about 400k views in the first weekend just on organic.

- Apple also put the App on the top banner in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. And featured it in many other countries as "hot this week", in the weeks after the launch.

- Google featured it globally at their Play Store in the New and Updated Apps.
