Mastercard promotes contactless card usage with free school meal donations
2017.10.25

LONDON, 12 October 2017 – Starting on Monday 16th October (World Food Day), for three weeks Mastercard will donate one school meal for every pay as you go journey made on Transport for London (TfL) and National Rail Services in London using a contactless Mastercard, or a Mastercard loaded into Apple Pay, Android Pay or Samsung Pay.
Each completed journey will provide a school meal for a child in need, through Mastercard’s partnership with the UN World Food Programme (WFP). This is the first campaign of its kind on London’s transport network.
Customers can pay as you go on bus, Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail, Emirates Air Line, Thames Clippers River Bus and most National Rail services in London, and a meal will be donated for every single journey made using a Mastercard.
