Love Food Give Food competition time

Love Food Give Food is a fabulous campaign running from the 1st of September to the end of November encouraging people to take action against child hunger.The Government has promised to match pound for pound all public donations made this year.
How shocking is it to learn that just £1 a day can help to provide an acutely malnourished child with the care they need to survive. A gift of £36 is enough to take a child back from the brink of starvation to full health, in just a few short weeks. So if you give £1 you will be helping two children thanks to the Government's promise.
If you wish to donate you can go here and click on the big red button!

As part of this year's campaign Love Food Give Food are hosting a fabulous food/Instagram competition, sounds perfect doesn't it?

So how do I enter? I hear you cry, as you reach for your camera.

I shall tell you!

You need to Instagram a picture that represents your love of food and what food means to you and you could win a ticket to a fabulous Diwali banquet cooked by top Indian chefs and Masterchef winner Shelina Permalloo. You could also then go on to win £5000, yes £5000!

Here's how to enter;
 Take a picture that reflects what food means to you – for example a great cooking moment, your favourite dish or a memorable meal, or even a cake!

The first two of are of food made for me by my parents with fruit and vegetables they have grown themselves. the third is a plate of cakes made by the kidlets for their Daddy's birthday  They all represent food with family, something incredibly important to learn and pass on.
