I hope my message finds you well.
I have a suggestion that I would like to share with you regarding the University Dining rooms/Cafeterias.
I would like to inquire if it’s possible to establish a support/donation model at the University of Tokyo dining rooms similar to that provided by “Table for Two”.
The idea is that the CO-OP can design a healthy menu from the food list provided, the menu give the option to students/professors with each meal they buy to automatically donate 10- 20 yen. This amount contributes to sharing meals or school launches for children in least developed countries facing food crisis.
The University CO-OP can establish a separate model as part of it’s services or they can make collaboration with “Table for Two” or other similar organizations. This system can contribute as well to the University commitment of achieving sustainable development goals.
I suggest that if such a system was established to provide the support to this list of countries facing food crisis. This list is based on hunger map reports and UN least developed countries.
The countries are in order of hunger map report
– Burkina Faso
– South Sudan
– Syrian Arab Republic
– Sierra Leone
If this not the proper communication channel for this suggestion, I hope you can guide me to which e-mail address I should send my request.
I hope I can receive your kind feedback.
This is the University of Tokyo Co-op. Sorry for the delay in replying.
Thank you very much for your suggestion.
Actually, I don’t know if you are aware of this, but we are holding a “TABLE FOR TWO” event at the cafeteria of the University of Tokyo.
Table for Two-UT
We have been collaborating with the above circle since November 2011, and have been implementing event planning at Komaba cafeteria and Hongo’s second cafeteria.
Table for Two-UT | UT-BASE
Table for Two-UT, the Todai branch of the non-profit organization Table for Two, is a circle made up of students from the University of Tokyo. It was founded in 2011 with the aim of simultaneously solving the problems of hunger in developing countries and obesity in developed countries.
Recently conducted from May 9 to 13, 2022 with the attached menu. We have done so.
It has been conducted at Komaba cafeteria and Hongo 2nd cafeteria.
Thank you for contacting us.
