MEATliquor | Action Against Hunger

We say thank you at Aveqia

In 2014 our amazing Love Food Give Food supporters helped us raise over £225,000 towards our work. We couldn’t carry out our life-saving work around the world without you.

Mar 10 2015

On Monday, 9th March, we held our annual celebratory event to raise a glass for all the fundraising restaurants, chefs and foodies that supported us in our Love Food Give Food campaign in 2014. Hosted by Aveqia, guests were treated to a wonderful evening of interactive cooking stations with Aveqia’s wonderful chefs who created Scandinavian inspired cuisine. 

Our Love Food Give Food campaign unites restaurants from around the UK during September and October by asking them to add and extra £1 or a donation on a favourite dish to their customers bills.

The night started with Action Against Hunger’s Executive Director Jean-Michel Grand, who spoke to our wonderful supporters with the message that ‘determined people working together can make real change'. This poignantly coincided on the same day the House of Lords passed the International Development Bill, which will see the UK’s commitment to spend 0.7% of overseas aid enshrined into law.

We then went on to congratulate some of our top fundraisers:

Love Food Give Food top £1 on the bill fundraiser 2014: MEATliquor
 
Love Food Give Food top new fundraiser 2014: Chiltern Firehouse
 
Top individual fundraiser 2014 - Nick Gibson, The Drapers Arms            
 
Action Against Hunger special award for raising £500,000: Hawksmoor
