Action Against Hunger needs you

Action Against Hunger needs you

Humanitarian organisation Action Against Hunger is urging the nation’s chefs and restaurateurs to support their annual Love Food Give Food appeal and raise funds to help provide food and clean drinking water to families worldwide.

Taking place throughout September and October and supported by a multitude of culinary luminaries including Raymond Blanc, Giorgio Locatelli, Valentine Warner and Marcus Wareing, Love Food Give Food unites food lovers who are turning their passion for food into action against hunger.

Raymond Blanc, who has supported the initiative for many years, appeals to his industry colleagues to sign up: “This is a great opportunity to be part of a premier fundraising campaign for restaurants that is simple, rewarding and raising money to prevent children dying from malnutrition. Just a little of your time and effort can make a positive difference to people’s lives.”

What started as a single fundraising initiative on World Food Day, Love Food Give Food has gone on to become a two-month-long appeal that sees restaurants raise funds by adding a discretionary donation to bills or designating a bestselling dish from which a contribution goes towards the charity.

Participating restaurants will also be able to offer their customers the fantastic chance to win 52 free meals (26 meals for 2) in restaurants across the nation by collecting four stickers on their Love Food Give Food loyalty cards. Customers can collect their stickers by dining at participating outlets between 1 September and 31 October.

Over 500 restaurants participated in 2010. With the on-going humanitarian catastrophe in East Africa, Action Against Hunger has set itself the challenge of enlisting 800 restaurants in 2011 and hopes to make this year’s Love Food Give Food appeal the biggest ever.
