Food for Good is a new way to raise money and help lift people out of poverty. Whether a small get together with just a few friends or a more formal event, it will help Practical Action continue its work across the world.

Budding chefs and food lovers are being urged to put their money where their mouths are and hold a dinner party - while raising cash for people living in poverty overseas.
Brand new initiative Food for Good is being spearheaded by Practical Action, a charity which runs food projects with some of the poorest communities across the world.
Whether a formal dinner party, an informal coffee morning, a barbeque or a picnic, guests are asked to make a donation so the charity can continue its vital work.
Or why not follow the 'Come Dine With Me' route and get together with friends to do a week of dinner parties and score each other?
Practical Action works in 13 countries across the world; and many of its projects focus on helping people grow and sell food.
From working with Bangladeshi communities to grow pumpkins on barren land, helping farmers to grow and sell crops, to introducing fuel efficient stoves, the charity has a number of exciting and innovative projects which improve people's access to food across the world.
Amy Kilpatrick, Practical Action's Community Fundraising Executive, said: "Food for Good is a new way to raise money and help lift people out of poverty. Whether a small get together with just a few friends or a more formal event, it will help Practical Action continue its work across the world."
Note to Editor: Practical Action, an international development charity, works with poor communities to help them choose and use technology to improve their lives for today and for generations to come.
