Square Meal, the leading restaurant guide, is supporting homelessness charity StreetSmart in their 2012 campaign, for the fourth year running.

The restaurant guide has collaborated with Spectrecom to create a short film featuring celebrity chefs such as Marcus Wareing, Angela Hartnett, Jeremy Lee and Ashley Palmer-Watts, talking about why they are passionate about Streetsmart.
