Don’t Miss: Action Against Hunger at Borough MarketBy Angelica Malin
On Tuesday 25th September the world-famous Market Hall at Borough Market will house some of London’s top chefs, bars and street food traders in a bid to create the ‘world’s greatest menu’, with many of the dishes available for this night only.
Action Against Hunger: The Lowdown
YouTube favourite DJ BBQ will host the 6th annual Auction, which has raised more than half a million pounds since it began in 2012. Action Against Hunger is a global humanitarian organisation that takes decisive action against the causes and effects of hunger. The organisation saves the lives of malnourished children, ensures families can access clean water, food, training and healthcare, and enables entire communities to be free from hunger. With 7,700 staff in nearly 50 countries, its programmes reached 20.2 million people in 2017.
