About the Fine Wine and Art Dinner
The Fine Wine and Art Dinner is Action Against Hunger’s annual flagship event. Guests have the opportunity to win one-of-a-kind prizes while enjoying a bespoke four course meal created by the evenings chefs. Previous chefs have included Angela Hartnett, Tom Kerridge, Raymond Blanc and Heston Blumenthal.
Now entering its 14th year, the Fine Wine and Art Dinner has so far raised a fantastic £3.6 million for our work providing life-saving treatment to children around the world.
How your support makes a difference
Because of your generosity, we’re able to reach thousands more children around the world suffering from life-threatening hunger. On the night, we shared the story of a little girl from Somalia called Halima and her remarkable recovery.
It takes just six weeks to save the life of a severely malnourished child and nurse them back to health.
