Lefktro Support Action Against Hunger
Lefktro UK were proud sponsors of Action Against Hunger at the recent Taste of London event which saw top chefs including Raymond Blanc, Gizzi Erskine and Shaun Searly create delicious burgers for visitors to the show.
Action Against Hunger | ACF International is a humanitarian organisation committed to ending child hunger. Every day they work to save the lives of malnourished children while providing families with sustainable access to safe water and good nutrition. With over 30 years of expertise in emergency situations of conflict, natural disaster and chronic food insecurity, they helped over 13.6 million people in 47 countries last year.
Emma Dodson of the Food Events and Fundraising team said, ‘ Lefktro’s very generous sponsorship for our restaurant allowed us to keep costs low and send more funds to our programmes overseas. Our burgers, padrón peppers and sweet potato fries were really popular and we are so delighted with how well we did'.
She continued, 'Thanks to Lefktro's help we were able to make an incredible £20,000 from our 5 Star Burger restaurant, with 100% of funds raised going towards our work. Combined with our other fundraising onsite we made over £30,000 over the five days. To put this into context, this is enough to provide the nutrition treatment to save the lives of 700 severely malnourished children, or can provide emergency kits for 2,300 people which include a blanket, soap, bucket and tarpaulin in times of crisis’.
Lefktro’s MD, James Tyler said, ‘We are always delighted to be able to help with sponsoring organisations such as Action Against Hunger. Their work is incredibly important and it is a real pleasure to be able support them, as well as being part of a project which saw fantastic food created by top class chefs.’
