Muslim Hands

Show your solidarity with our brothers and sisters struggling across Africa by eating just one meal a day. You can drink as much water as you want and what time you eat is up to you, but meat and large portions are a no-no! Meals must be kept simple to reflect the staple diet of many Africans. A bowl of grains like rice or pasta together with a handful of veg is typical. 

Send pictures of your meal to or on WhatsApp 07552 438 579 or tag us on FB and Twitter and share with us how the challenge has affected you both mentally and physically.

Then, tag three friends that you think are tough enough to take on this challenge, and see which of them can last the longest.

You can also donate what you would have normally spent on food for the duration of the challenge to our Africa on the Edge: Food Crisis Appeal.

Don’t forget to use the #OneMealChallenge hashtag and to share your experience with everyone, including us!


* We do not advise that those who are pregnant, unwell, elderly or have experienced an eating disorder previously, take part in this challenge. If you are unsure, please consult your doctor first.
