On Monday, 9th March, Action Against Hunger held an event to celebrate all the restaurants that had supported them in their Love Food Give Food Campaign over 2014. Domaine du Grand Mayne was delighted to provide the wine for this event.
In 2014 the campaign aimed to provide 20,000 malnourished children with life-saving treatment using the funds raised between September and the end of November. It involved everyone from top chefs, restaurants, food brands, to those who simply love food. Activities in 2014 included restaurants fundraising, a celebrity chef India cycle challenge, food lovers hosting dinner parties and a number of high-profile events. Specifically, however, the Love Food Give Food campaign unites restaurants from around the UK during September and October by asking them to add an extra £1 or a donation on a favourite dish to their customers bills.
On Monday the industry gathered to raise a glass for all the fundraising restaurants, chefs and foodies that supported the Love Food Give Food campaign in 2014, and to award the prizes for those that raised the most money.
Hosted by Aveqia, guests were treated to a wonderful evening of interactive cooking stations with Aveqia’s wonderful chefs, who created Scandinavian inspired cuisine.
Most importantly, we were delighted to serve wine from Domaine du Grand Mayne to the guests, as our way of supporting the initiative.
