Zambrero fights world hunger

zambrero1Quick service restaurant franchise, Zambrero, in partnership with food relief organisation, Foodbank, has begun recruiting Australian volunteers to participate in a Stop Hunger Now meal packaging event on World Food Day.

The event, to be held on October 16 at Zambrero’s new Sydney site in Coogee, will see volunteers funelling ingredients into packages to be donated locally via Foodbank, and overseas, via distribution partner, Stop Hunger Now.

The strategy is part of a wider campaign that will see 350,000 meals packaged across eight Australian cities including Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Townsville, Wagga Wagga, and Adelaide.

“Hunger is a hidden crisis in Australia with one in ten Australians, half of whom are children, seeking food relief each year according to Foodbank,” said Zambrero founder, Dr Sam Prince.

“Zambrero is on a mission to end world hunger in our lifetime and wants Australians to join us in tackling this serious issue, though we do promise packaging events are lots of fun.”

The franchise has already donated 6.6 million meals around the world since it was founded in 2005 through its Plate 4 Plate initiative- a campaign where a meal is donated to someone in need every time a burrito or bowl is sold.
