United in our love of food, pubs, restaurants, bars, cafés, hotels or

just eating in general, tonight we are raising money for Hospitality

Action and the Belazu Foundation. We are very grateful to have

been supplying Mediterranean and Middle Eastern ingredients to

longstanding customers and chef friends within the hospitality

industry for the last 30 years. This year, COVID-19 has triggered

an existential threat to the future of the hospitality industry and

millions of its employees who have been unable to work.


The money raised this evening will support Hospitality Action to

provide emergency grants for vulnerable workers, for those struggling

to put food on their own tables or battling with their mental health

during the crisis. During the last seven months Hospitality Action

has been able to support thousands of hospitality families when they

have had nowhere else to turn. With funds raised via Belazu’s Virtual

Banquet this December, we will be able to provide ongoing grants and

expert advice to the hospitality world in the run up to Christmas.


A percentage of the money raised from this evening will also be

donated to the Belazu Foundation’s charity partners, Chefs in Schools

and School Food Matters. In May, our Virtual Banquet raised £60,000

for Chefs in Schools which places professional, restaurant-trained

chefs in primary schools to transform their food, food culture and

food education. During the summer, this money helped to support

an emergency fund to provide meals directly to families suffering

from the fall out of the covid crisis. School Food Matters is a charity

that campaigns for fresh and sustainable school meals and delivers

food education programmes to get children cooking, growing and

out onto a farm as well as essential holiday hunger clubs.
