On 10th September, we took to the streets of London with charity Action Against Hunger to film the Walk Against Hunger.
Kicking off Action Against Hunger’s Love Food Give Food flagship fundraising campaign for 2015, the walk covered over 25km and took in some of the top 40 restaurants in central London. The chosen restaurants were leading Love Food Give Food 2014 fundraisers and the Action Against Hunger team personally wanted to say a huge thank you to them for their contribution and their continued support in 2015. Top London chefs and restaurants including Angela Hartnett and Jason Atherton’s restaurants were thanked.
Running throughout September and October, Action Against Hunger’s Love Food Give Food unites UK chefs, restaurants and lovers of eating out through the addition of a discretionary £1 donation to every table bill.
In 2014, over 350 restaurants raised £350,000 helping Action Against Hunger to provide life-saving treatment to malnourished children in 46 countries worldwide. By filming the Walk Against Hunger, Action Against Hunger hope to be able to inspire even more restaurants, chefs and diners to get involved in the campaign in 2016 so they can grow their much needed work worldwide.
Being food lovers ourselves, and as food and celebrity chef filming experts, From the Hip Video were delighted to offer their time to help Action Against Hunger achieve their goal.
Dan, our Founding Partner comments “We make our living filming in the food & restaurant industry. To be able to give back and produce a film for Action Against Hunger that aims to inspire more restaurants, chefs and food lovers to get involved in Love Food Give Food was a no brainer. We sincerely hope our film helps the charity raise even more money to continue their life-saving work.”
Emma Cullingford, Head of Food Related Fundraising at Action Against Hunger says “We would like to thank From the Hip Video. As a charity our priority is funding our life saving work with the money we raise not marketing. We now have a professionally produced fundraising film at no cost to help us raise even more money to help end child hunger.”
