Restaurants Against Hunger month

October is Restaurants Against Hunger month. Started in 1998 by Action Against Hunger, RAH helps channel the dedication and commitment of the food and restaurant industry to help millions of hungry people every year. 90% of all money raised goes to support the overseas programme, and RAH gets restaurants to participate in various ways to raise these funds.

Founder Bill Knott says that ‘the emphasis is on enjoyment, not guilt: customers are encouraged to treat themselves to a meal out and in doing so know that they are helping to feed the hungry.’ What better way to get involved? Check the website for participating restaurants.
