Love Food Give Food
Love Food Give Food unites food lovers across the UK into taking action against hunger. Everyone from our well-known chef ambassadors and restaurants, food producers and bloggers, to those who simply love to cook, can take a small action and make a big difference to get child hunger off the table.
The support provided by our chefs and restaurants allows Action Against Hunger not only to treat malnourished children but also to provide their families with with access to safe water and long term sustainable solutions to hunger.
Action Against Hunger has been working with the food industry for 15 years, and last
autumn Love Food Give Food was bigger than ever. The UK Government will match pound for pound all public donations made between 1st September and 30th November 2012. This means that all donations we received towards our Love Food Give Food appeal during this period will be doubled so we can reach twice as many malnourished children and provide them with the support and nutrition they need to grow, learn and develop.
It costs just £1 a day to provide an acutely malnourished child with the care they need to survive. A gift of £36 is enough to take a child back from the brink of starvation to full health, in just a few short weeks.
We’re there in over 40 countries worldwide, reaching over 7 million people every year. By joining us, you will help get child hunger off the table and find out just how access to food and nutrition can transform the lives of whole communities. Together, we will celebrate the potential of the people we are working with to build a world without hunger, for their children and the generations to come. Because we know that the solutions to end child hunger are within our reach and that together we can get child hunger off the table. So please join us, and help make this happen.
