Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I've decided to undertake a personal fundraising project for Action Against Hunger - a humanitarian organisation committed to ending child hunger:
I will attempt to cook the national dishes of the 47 countries currently supported by the charity.
Those of you who know me, know how much I love to cook. I literally cook ALL the time. I've been thinking for a while now of ways that I can make my hobby something more. I, like so many, (particularly living in London) have almost unrestricted access to pretty much all of the world's ingredients and produce that you can imagine.
This is certainly not true for 1 in 9 people in the world who suffer from malnutrition. The UN World Hunger Programme says; "There is enough food in the world to feed everyone and no scientific breakthroughs are needed. Today’s knowledge, tools and policies, combined with political will, can solve the problem."
Through this project I hope to raise money to support the recipients of the charitable activities of Action Against Hunger alongside campaigning to eradicate world hunger. Find out where the money goes here: http://www.actionagainsthunger.org.uk/who-are-we/how-we-spend-your-money.
So I plan to do this in two and a half ways:
1. For every national dish/es that I cook from the list I will personally donate through this fundrasing page. This will include all practice gos at the dish.
2. I will invite people to my home to come and eat these dishes! For every person that comes to eat I will ask that they make a minimum donation of £10 towards my fundraiser.
2 1/2. For those who can't come and eat or if you just like the look of my food, donate anyway!
I will of course be keeping a blog with the progress of the fundraising and all the national dishes that I cook. Any suggestions on recipes are VERY welcome and if you would like to come to dinner let me know :)
Here is a list of all the countries:
Central African Republic
Democratic Republic Of Congo
Europe & Middle East
Occupied Palestinian Territory
North & South America
