This week on Japan Eats, host Akiko Katayama is joined by Mayumi Uejima-Carr of the Table for Two USA organization, a nonprofit that simultaneously addresses the opposing issues of malnutrition/hunger in developing countries and overconsumption/obesity in the developed world. The concept is to take excess calories from places like the U.S. and transfer them to countries in need.

TABLE FOR TWO is holding a World Food Day 2017 campaign from Oct 5th to Nov 15th.
