Growing our own helps us to truly appreciate the produce that springs forth.
But in some countries there are still vast food shortages and families are often unable to provide a nourishing meal for their children.
At Gabriel Ash we take a compassionate approach to these issues and we believe that by supporting people in our country to grow their own vegetables, we are making a contribution to the fight to eliminate world hunger.
Action for Hunger’s ‘Love Food, Give Food’ appeal ends on 30 November and money raised will help the charity provide sustainable solutions to hunger around the world. The UK Government has agreed to match every pound donated before 30 November, which means that the funds will feed twice as many children.
The charity’s aims are to save the lives of malnourished children, whilst providing communities with access to safe drinking water and sustainable solutions to hunger. It has 30 years of expertise in emergency situations of conflict, natural disaster and chronic food insecurity, and operates life-saving programmes in over 45 countries benefitting seven million people each year.
Recently, top chefs lined up to cook at London’s Guildhall restaurant – part of the Hawksmoor steak house chain – in an Action Against Hunger event.
AA Chefs' 'Chef of the Year' Pierre Koffmann, two Michelin-starred chef Nathan Outlaw and top pastry chef Claire Clark cooked a course each at the charitable event to raise funds for the charity. They were supported by chefs Brett Graham, owner of The Ledbury, and Bruno Loubet, owner of Bistrot Bruno Loubet.
So if you feel inclined to help feed a wider community than those around your own table, consider helping food charities like Action for Hunger.
