Eat with the Katambara Family: July 2017
Follow the meal plan of a family from rural Zimbabwe for five days, to raise vital funds for families suffering from hunger.
Challenge yourself to prepare local dishes from rural Zimbabwe such as Bota and Sadza (recipes available here) and stay away from all your usual favourites!
- Only eat meals from our strict meal plan.
- No snacks between meals.
- No 'luxuries' like alcohol, chocolate or crisps.
Find Your Feet and Health Poverty Action, the charities behind the campaign, believe in a world in which everyone has the right to build a future free from hunger and poverty. By taking part in ‘Eat with Me’ you can raise vital funds to enable families in some of the world’s poorest communities grow enough food so they don’t go hungry and earn enough money to provide for their families.
Every single pound that you raise will be doubled by Natco Foods, which will double the number of people we can support and therefore double the difference you can make!

“I’ve learnt about soil and water conservation techniques, as well as natural pest management. Now I grow pineapples, avocados, bananas, sweet potatoes, peas, cabbages, maize and finger millet with my wife. Half of what we produce we eat, the other half we sell.”
