Zambrero’s annual Plate 4 Plate Day is held nationally across Australia in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, and Adelaide, and on World Food Day will rally communities together to pack up to 450,000 meals for those in need.
Zambrero CEO – Bianca Azzopardi, says: “Zambrero is passionate about driving awareness around the global hunger crisis, highlighting it as an issue that is both widespread and underestimated. Our Plate 4 Plate Day is held on World Food Day to encourage our customers to face poverty at a local level. This is an opportunity for Australians to consider who it is that will address short-term hunger if not those with the time and resources to do so.
We can’t wait to see our customers head to their local meal packing event on Wednesday, October 16th 2019 with their friends and family, to help pack these vital meals for those in need.”
Separate to Plate 4 Plate Day, Zambrero has donated over 33 million meals to date across 200 international restaurants located in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and the United States via their Plate 4 Plate initiative. The year-round initiative sees Zambrero match any burrito, bowl, or retail product purchased at any Zambrero Restaurant and in turn donate a meal to someone in need. Partnering with both Foodbank who support Australians in need and Rise Against Hunger, who offer international support.
