Love Food Give Food

Bringing together businesses and their customers from across the food and hospitality industry to take action against hunger.

Food is a human right but the fight to end hunger has never been harder. Right now, there are 11 million children around the world at risk of life-threatening hunger.

Action Against Hunger supports mothers who often stand as the frontline defence in their children’s fight against malnutrition. We know that mums will go to enormous lengths to provide food for their families. But sometimes the odds against them can be stacked very high.

Together, through our shared love of food, we can fight the hunger crisis and help vulnerable communities to build a brighter future. We know what we can achieve when we act together. In the last 20 years, our food and hospitality partners have raised over £11 million to help us treat severely malnourished children.

Just £1 can provide a mother with a day’s worth of life saving therapeutic food to treat a malnourished child. In September and October, you can raise lifesaving funds by simply adding a voluntary £1 donation to your customers’ bills.

With enough £1s, we can save lives and ensure children around the world grow up healthy.

You can do this by asking your head chef to share a recipe inspired by their mum or their childhood in a cooking demonstration on your Instagram channel. We’ll provide a full toolkit and instructions on how to take part.
