More Than a Meal

Observing World Food Day by advocating for better food for all with ‘More than a Meal’ campaign.

My friends, good food is not always a choice.

Right now, 690 million people don’t have enough to eat. With the pandemic, the problem is only getting worse.

To raise awareness for healthy, nutritious meals, I’ve partnered with World Vision International and the Chefs’ Manifesto on this 2020 World Food Day.

I’m delighted to share that our ‘More Than A Meal’ global campaign launches today! Read on for recipes and inspiration.

More Than a Meal

‘More Than a Meal’ is a beautiful collection of recipes from around the globe, to which a series of Chefs’ Manifesto chefs contributed their favourite childhood meal, as well as a connected memory.

Check out all the mouthwatering recipes from warming pumpkin soup to beet brownies here > More Than a Meal.

You’ll find my recipe for Pumpkin, Lentil and Kale Soup, and a little story from my childhood.

“Just a week ago, the Nobel Peace Prize Committee recognized the world was in trouble. When you don’t have food security, you’ve got no security at all. This #WorldFoodDay2020, let’s acknowledge that everyone deserves the right to life and thereby, the right to food.”

I truly believe everyone deserves access to nutritious food and the ability to prepare and enjoy it with their families, no matter where you’re born. Good food makes progress possible.

“Food not only nourishes but unities us. By uniting to share our love of food, we can work together to tackle hunger and ensure access to nutritious food for all people, regardless of where they live.”
