How to feed the world with Action Against Hunger

The Love Food Give Food campaign returns to Carluccio's and more

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and we suspect the same could be said of many children. But what happens when a child can’t get the nourishment they need? It is a sad truth that in developing countries, many children go hungry on a daily basis. Action Against Hunger’s Love Food Give Food campaign, running until the end of November, aims to tackle this heartbreaking issue by bringing together top chefs, restaurants and members of the public to combat child hunger.

Over 500 restaurants will be adding a special dish to their menus, so while you slurp Carluccio’s Penne Giardiniera, 50p of your bill will help Action Against Hunger edge closer to its £1 million target to help children in Liberia, Burkina Faso and Niger. Donations can also be made online and by text, with £3 providing three days of treatment for a malnourished child and £10 affording a market gardening kit for a family.

The UK government will match all public donations made before November 30, and if George O and co can put their hands in their withered wallets, so can we.
