Hospitality Action is asking companies and employees to donate their lunch money to the trade charity for the hospitality industry on Lunch Box Day, 23 September 2016.
There are two ways companies can get involved:
1) If lunch is a benefit for the team: ask them to bring in a packed lunch and donate the money normally spent on lunch to Hospitality Action
2) If lunch is not normally a benefit: treat them to lunch and ask the team to donate the money they would normally have spent
Hospitality Action is also encouraging participants to tweet a photograph of their lunch using @HospAction and hashtag #SandwichSelfie.
This is the second year Lunch Box Day has run, after its successful launch in 2015 and companies including ACT Clean, Chef Jobs UK, Mercieca, The Hoxton, Sauce Communications, Jellybean Creative, COREcruitment and The Arch Hotel are amongst the first to sign up to take part alongside Ace Hotel and St. Ermin's Hotel.
Penny Moore, Chief Executive of Hospitality Action says: “In the first six months of this year, Hospitality Action spent £291,627 supporting industry colleagues in need through various grants and initiatives. We couldn’t have done this great work without our supporters getting involved in fundraising events such as Lunch Box Day. It’s very simple to take part and we hope everyone will share the idea with other colleagues and businesses too.”
