Supporting Curry for Change Campaign
Posted on 27th May 2014
Around the world, nearly one billion people suffer from hunger because they do not have enough food to eat all year round. The vast majority of these people live in very remote areas of Asia and Africa. Throughout June, Chakra will be supporting the Find Your Feet ‘Curry for Change’ campaign as they look to help families build futures free from poverty and hunger.
Find Your Feet was established in 1960 by journalist Carol Martin in response to the plight of Eastern European refugees after the Hungarian uprising. Martin was concerned that families were suffering from hunger and malnutrition, and was keen to do something about it. In the 50 years since, the organisation has evolved from one that provides humanitarian assistance to one that supports long term rural development projects.
Curry for Change will help to change the lives of families living in rural Africa and Asia by helping them to grow enough food so that they do not need to go hungry, by giving them a voice to allow them to speak out against injustice, and to enable them to earn enough money so that they can find their feet.
By dining at Chakra during June you will have the opportunity to support their work by adding a discretionary donation of £1 to your bill. Natco Foods, the UK's leading producer of herbs, spices and pulses, will match every penny raised; meaning your support will make double the difference to the lives of those families who are suffering from hunger.
