Eat With Me - A New Charity Challenge For 2017

Eat with me. Curry for change

This July follow the meal plan of a family from rural Zimbabwe for five days, to raise vital funds for families suffering from hunger.

Challenge yourself to prepare local dishes from rural Zimbabwe such as Bota and Sadza and stay away from all your usual favourites.

The Rules:

  • Only eat meals from our strict meal plan
  • No snacks between meals
  • No 'luxuries' like alcohol, chocolate or crisps

African Food African Cooking


Find Your Feet and Health Poverty Action are the charities behind the challenge. We believe in a world in which everyone has the right to a future free from hunger and poverty. By taking part in ‘Eat with Me’ you can raise vital funds to enable families in some of the world’s poorest communities grow enough food so they don’t go hungry and earn enough money to provide for their families.
