About Onigiri Action
Onigiri Action (https://usa.tablefor2.org/onigiri-action) is an annual social good campaign organized by Table For Two. When photos of onigiri are posted on the campaign website or social media with #OnigiriAction, five school meals are donated to children in need around the world. TFT holds "Onigiri Action" to coincide with World Food Day with a goal to deliver 1 million meals to children every year. TFT started in Japan and features onigiri, which celebrates rice, one of Japan's major agricultural products and highlights the tradition of making onigiri for loved ones. Enjoy your onigiri, and join us to help in Onigiri Action!
TABLE FOR TWO USA (https://usa.tablefor2.org/), is a non-profit organization, that addresses issues of hunger and health issues related to unhealthy eating. As a non-profit organization which started in Japan and is expanding globally, TFT has started the innovative programs: “Onigiri Action”, “Wa-Shokuiku-Learn. Cook. Eat Japanese! - “and “#EdamameChamp” featuring Japanese food culture.
Onigiri, the Japanese rice ball, is a beloved comfort food widely eaten across Japan. It is made from short or medium grain steamed rice molded into a triangular, ball, or cylindrical shape. It is often wrapped with nori (roasted seaweed) and stuffed with a variety of fillings and flavors. It’s a perfect snack that is tasty, healthy, and easy to make!
