With support from celebrity chefs, top London restaurants, and dedicated members of the public, charity campaign Curry for Change is getting bigger.
Every year Curry for Change raises tens of thousands of pounds to tackle hunger and poverty across Asia and Africa. This year, for the first time, it will embrace cuisines, cultures and curries from more countries than ever before.
It will expand its usual focus on Indian cooking, to explore tastes from across the continent and beyond.
Running from June to December 2017, the campaign encourages people across the UK, from cooking enthusiasts’ to total beginners, to host a curry themed dinner party using recipes from countries such as India, Cambodia and Myanmar.
By signing up, aspiring cooks will receive a Curry for Change pack, which includes all the essentials to invite friends, family or co-workers for a spicy night in. The kit includes exclusive recipes from campaign ambassadors, top cooking tips and a packet of Natco spices.
What’s more, every penny raised by the public through hosting curry nights will be doubled by campaign sponsor Natco Foods.
This change comes as Find Your Feet, the UK charity behind Curry for Change, joins forces with fellow charity Health Poverty Action. Going forward they will be working as sister organisations, to grow the life-changing work they do and ensure the greatest possible impact for the families they support.
Together, they will work in more than 19 countries around the world.
They will support some of the poorest and most isolated communities in the world to tackle the causes of hunger and malnutrition.
By collaborating the two charities will be more effective, so that even more from every pound donated will go directly to the beneficiaries.
They will work together to help families grow more food, find ways of earning an income and access vital information on nutrition, healthcare and sanitation.
Together, we can build a future free from hunger and poverty.
