their lives to hunger each year than they do to AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria combined. Who is ready when disaster hits? From Nepal to South Sudan, from Mali to Iraq, Action Against Hunger is there when a crisis calls...
And that is why 2,000 people play a part every May in Auction Against Hunger. It’s unique. And that is also why the likes of Franzesco Mazzei, Nieves Barragan Mohacho, Jack Stein, and José Pizarro alongside Bob’s Lobster, Meat Hook, Yum Bun, and BAD Brownie all ship in – all for the hunger heroes – with one objective, to raise as much as they can for the charity. And what a sterling job they did – over £218,000 was raised on May 26th. Of the
result, Gary Lineker said: “What an incredible evening everyone has had here, all for a great cause. Action Against Hunger helps children all around the world who may not know where their next meal is coming from. It
is fantastic to see top chefs and people who really care about food come together to raise funds for the charity’s work.”
We say – well done you cooks of compassion at Action Against Hunger – keep up the good work and see you again at the greatest Street Food party in town.
