We were very proud to be able to support Action Against Hunger, the official charity partner to the Taste of London festival, with chicken reared on our Yorkshire farms.
Chef Shaun Searley, pictured, created a special festival recipe of buttermilk fried chicken burgers with smoked bacon mayonnaise, beef tomato with crispy chicken skin that were sold to raise money in Action Against Hunger’s 5 Star Burger Restaurant during the five-day festival held in Regent’s Park.
Our sales manager, Tom Kingston, said: “We were really pleased to be asked to sponsor Action Against Hunger at the Taste of London festival and be part of a fantastic restaurant festival known for a high quality food.
“The charity got in touch to thank us for our donation and we hope that everyone who had a chance to taste one of the chicken burgers enjoyed their meal, all in aid of charity.
“I think it’s good to give something back to those who have less than us and we believe this is an excellent project to be involved with.”
The chicken burger was one of five burgers designed by five chefs served at the event that sold for £5 each.
Action Against Hunger food campaigns officer Zawadi Phillimore said: “Taste is an incredible festival with a vibrant atmosphere, featuring only the best in foodie delights.
“Action Against Hunger is proud to have been partnered with Taste of London for 10 years now.
“We are glad to be able to work with people who love food, to raise funds to support those who have no food. It is thanks to our incredible supporters in the food industry, such as T.Soanes & Son, that we are able to continue our lifesaving work.”
Action Against Hunger works in almost 50 countries, reaching 14.9 million people a year and has raised over £150,000 for its programmes around the world through this collaboration with Taste of London.
