Break Bread for Africa

By Patinoz

More than two million children are affected by the food crisis in East Africa and a child is dying there every six minutes. So what are we going to do about it?

Most of us here don’t have the worry of wondering where our next meal is coming from – or if indeed there will be a next meal. We enjoy the luxury of being able to dine out. Not only that, but many of the places where we dine often serve us complimentary bread as we sip our first drink. So – would you be prepared to pay a couple of dollars for that bread?

At this week’s launch of The Age Good Food Guide, Melbourne’s award winning newspaper joined UNICEF in also launching the Bread for Good project.  The campaign is seeking support from restaurateurs to register their establishments and encourage diners to donate $2 or more when ordering bread. Participating restaurants will submit their patrons’ donations to help save those precious young lives.

Help a child

Every $2 collected will help UNICEF provide enough therapeutic food to keep a child alive for a day.

Restaurants can register here  right now and the campaign will kick off on September 16.

The initiative will also be supported by The Sydney Morning Herald which launches its own Good Food Guide next week.

We can help. Let’s support our restaurants and chefs in making a difference!
