1750 meals delivered for Ending Child Food Poverty appeal
Two Halal food brands, a national Halal certification body and an international charity came together last week in aid of Ending Child Food Poverty.
London’s legendary restaurant Chaudhry’s TKC and American BBQ street food vendor Smoke & Bones produced 1750 meals during the half-term school holidays.
Partnering with Shahid Afridi Foundation, a charity setup by the former Pakistani cricketer, and Halal Monitoring Committee, all funds raised were donated to England footballer Marcus Rashford’s ‘No Child Goes Hungry’ campaign.
The meals were cooked, packed and delivered to feed vulnerable children across Southall, where TKC is located, as well as Hackney Wick and Camden.
Smoke & Bones announced on Instagram last week: “Something incredible happened – we were approached by the wonderful Shahid Afridi Foundation who we are going to team up with to feed vulnerable children across the UK.”
A contribution of £4 to the Shahid Afridi Foundation appeal covered the cost of a healthy, hot meal and drink for one child, while £20 covered the cost of meals over the duration of what would be a normal school week.
TKC thanked its team yesterday “for cooking, packing and delivering delicious meals in aid of Ending Child Food Poverty”.
