Are you a bit of an Instagram fan? If so, you’ll like this.
Today is World Food Day, and I’ve teamed up with Action Against Hunger, who are once again running Love Food Give Food, inviting food lovers across the UK to raise funds to feed some of the world’s poorest children.
I’ve volunteered you (you’re welcome) to help a bit. All you have to do is share your food photography with the world. It doesn’t matter whether it’s something you made for dinner, or something delicious you’ve been served in a restaurant, just snap away and use the Instagram hashtags #offthetable (this is our own personal hashtag, so spread it around!) and #lovefoodgivefood.
The snapper of the best photo will get an invitation worth £100, to Action Against Hunger’s Diwali Banquet on Sunday 18th November 2012, with a fabulous Champagne Taittinger reception, and food cooked by chefs from, amongst other places, Cinnamon Kitchen, and this year’s Masterchef Winner, Shelina Permalloo. Action Against Hunger’s fantastic corporate partner unearthed®, will also be submitting the top 20 entries into the Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year Awards, with a prize fund of £5,000!
I very rarely get involved in charity things, but this one is so important, so please, please take five minutes to snap a fab foodie shot. This year, the Government has pledged to match all donations made in September, October and November pound for pound. This money can do amazing things to help children battling hunger in places like Burkina Faso, Niger and Liberia.
Even if you’re not an Instagram fan, please do donate to this worthy cause.
All pictures must be submitted by midnight on Sunday 28th October and the winners will be announced on Wednesday 31 October. You must use both tags (so we can find your picture, and show it to the world). The judges’ decision is, as always with these things, final, and your prize cannot be exchanged for alternative things (like cash).
