A Good Dinner charity launched to tackle food and water poverty

Related tags Restaurant Hawksmoor

A group of UK’s leading restaurant owners, investors and operators has launched a charity that will raise money to help tackle food and water poverty at home and abroad.

A Good Dinner will bring together operators, investors, advisors and other senior figures at various events and will provide the chance to network and, as an industry, to take action against food and water poverty.

The inaugural event will take place on 11 October at The Bloomsbury Ballroom in London with Inception Group and Hawksmoor providing the drinks and dinner for around 200 guests followed by an after party. The event will include a ‘money can’t buy’ auction.

Charities Action Against Hunger, The One Foundation and Magic Breakfast will benefit equally from the first event.

People involved in the charity include Will Beckett, co-founder of Hawksmoor and chairman of Rockfish Restaurants; restaurateur Mark Hix, MBE; and Karen Jones, CBE, who is the current chair of Hawksmoor and the co-founder of Café Rouge.

“We’re all lucky to be able to work in food and drink - an industry we love. Yet we’re doing this in a world where millions of children don’t have the basics of life – enough food and clean water,” says Beckett.

“Even in the UK over half a million children arrive at school each day too hungry or malnourished to learn. A few of us wanted to do more and try to raise money to help fulfil this pressing need at home and abroad. 

“We want ‘A Good Dinner’ to be exactly that: a really enjoyable evening that raises a large amount of money for a great cause.”
