Anyone who’s scoffed and supped at a supperclub will understand the allure of eating cheek by jowl with strangers. Sharing food is the fastest route to friendship; breaking bread serving to breakdown barriers and cross those crucial cultural differences that really shouldn’t mean much at all.
But what if you could share some of the spoils with individuals from far further afield – even those eating on an entirely different continent? In a less literal sense, that’s what the #CurryforChange campaign is all about. Participants might not quite be sharing their real meal with the charity’s food impoverished communities, but you can ensure them a pretty winning dinner by playing the host with the most and getting your diners to donate to the cause.
Find Your Feet works at ground level and with the rural communities themselves; encouraging personal proactivity, empowerment, and education. In all those areas, the spirit may well be willing, but the flesh cannot be able without an adequate nutritional intake. Without food, there’s failure. And for Find Your Feet, failing their communities simply isn’t an option.
Want to help feed funds into the campaign? In October, Find Your Feet needs you to #CurryforChange; cooking a knockout meal for mates and asking them all to donate the price of a takeaway to the charity. You don’t have to be a brilliant chef to be a #CurryforChange supperclub superstar – the charity will sort you out with a few nice bits from Natco and a fair few recipe cards from some cracking cooks.
