In light of the current global circumstances, we are bringing a limited edition ‘Peace salad’ to our shelves, made with sweet potato, feta and pomegranate. The bowl will be priced at £5, wherein the full price of the item will be donated to The Disasters Emergency Committee via Work for Good.
The committee unites 15 of the leading UK humanitarian aid charities to raise funds quickly and efficiently to supply international aid in response to overseas crises. Since opening in 1963 the committee has launched 74 appeals and over £1.7 billion to countries across the world to assist those who are displaced, in need of medicine, shelter, food, clothing and sanitary products.
The committee follows a criterion before launching appeals, based on a countries capacity to provide self-sufficient aid and a requirement for urgent international assistance. Even if the committee does not launch a direct appeal, it is often the case that their member charities are working on the ground in those countries whilst continuing to monitor on-going worldwide events to ensure they are able to provide fast assistance if needed.
Chop’d has always made sure to support the notion of peace. We refuse to open our stores during the Arms fair, also known as the DSEI convention that takes place annually at the ExCel Arena in London.
Next time you’re in one of our stores, keep an eye out for a yellow label in our ready to go range. We will have a weekly total that can be found on our Instagram page and website.
To give a little can help a lot.
