講演題目: Food Banks and the Work of Second Harvest Japan

講演内容:
Each day in Tokyo 6000 tons of food are thrown away. Charles McJilton knew that there must be a better way to reduce waste and get food to those who need it. He started an NGO in Japan (2HJ) that presently has nearly 20 organizations registered with it, ranging from open-air kitchens serving the homeless to women’s shelters and a home for unwed mothers. These groups receive rice and other food products directly or indirectly from 2HJ on a regular basis. To date, the organization has redistributed over 8000 tons of food. Since March 2011, 2HJ has also provided food and disaster relief supplies to the Tohoku region.

講師プロフィール:
Charles McJilton Having first come to Japan in 1984 while serving in the U.S. military on the USS Towers DDG9, Mr. Charles McJilton has been the CEO of 2HJ since 2002. He is also an adjunct professor at Sophia University teaching NGO management and issues related to the nonprofit sector. Since 2010, he has been the Chair of Second Harvest Asia, promoting the development of food banks in Asia and networking with existing food banks in the region to share best practices. As if he did not wear enough hats already, from January 2011, Mr. McJilton has taken the role of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) committee chair for the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan. Last year he became the founder and chair of the first incorporated food bank in the Philppines, Salu-Salo, which was very good timing considering the devastating Typhoon Haiyan that struck the Philippines a few weeks ago.
