Hard Rock Cafe London launches annual food bank
Story by Jack Foley
HARD Rock Cafe London has launched its second annual Food Bank in support of WhyHunger’s global, John Lennon inspired, Imagine There’s No Hunger campaign.
Until December 23, Londoners can visit the Cafe and donate canned foods, which will be distributed to shelters in the capital on Christmas Eve.
Londoners generosity last year enabled Hard Rock Cafe to donated truckloads of food to three local shelters, just in time for Christmas. Staff are hoping this year’s Food Bank will be even more successful and that Londoners will once again get behind the campaign, into the Christmas spirit and done generously.
Marc Carey, European Marketing Director from Hard Rock Cafe London, said: “We are proud to once again be joining forces with WhyHunger in the fight against poverty. Our Food Bank was such a success last year that we wanted to bring it back this Christmas with the aim of encouraging even more Londoners to support the ‘Imagine There’s No Hunger’ campaign and donate.
“Anyone can visit the London cafe where staff will be on hand to accept canned foods for the bank. Please give generously!”
In a time where 1.4 billion people live below the poverty line, 820 million people are undernourished, and 16,000 children die from hunger-related causes every day, it’s hard to imagine John Lennon’s vision of a world with no hunger.
To ensure that the message Lennon sent in his iconic song Imagine lives on today, artist and musician Yoko Ono Lennon again joins forces with Hard Rock International and WhyHungerfor Imagine There’s No Hunger.
In its sixth year, IMAGINE is a global campaign to fight childhood hunger and poverty through the support of sustainable agriculture education and nutritional feeding programs.
Hard Rock Cafe London’s Food Bank is located on the terrace of the cafe (150 Old Park Lane, London, W1K 1QZ) and will be taking donations until December 23. For more information on WhyHunger visit www.whyhunger.org.
