The Oscar winner joins the celebrated US fashion house in its effort to end world hunger

Michael Kors recently announced that the 12 Years A Slave Academy Award-winning actress, Lupita Nyong’o, has joined its philanthropic campaign against hunger—Watch Hunger Stop. Now in its 7th year, the campaign supports the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and its school meals programme, which to date has delivered over 18 million meals to children in need. The theme for Watch Hunger Stop's 2019 campaign is "Food Is Love", inspired by words often used by Michael Kors when speaking about the issue.
