World Food Day 2003
ACTION AGAINST HUNGER Benefit

World Food Day, now in its 23rd year, is observed worldwide. Chosen to mark the founding of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization on October 16,1945, World Food Day allows all sectors of society to increase awareness, understanding, and year-round action on the critical issue of hunger. This year the UN designated 2003 as the International Year of Fresh Water to bring attention to the plight of 1.1 billion people (1/6 of the world’s population) who lack access to clean drinking water.

Action Against Hunger is a world leader in the fight against hunger. Our programs approach hunger on four fronts — nutrition, water and sanitation, food security, and health. With programs in over 40 countries, specializing in emergency situations of war, conflict, and natural disaster, our ultimate goal is to help vulnerable populations regain their self-sufficiency for long term sustainability.

Action Against Hunger’s Scientific Committee pioneered the therapeutic milk formula now used by all major humanitarian organizations. The therapeutic feeding centers are at the heart of our nutritional program. In less than 30 days, children and adults dying from acute malnutrition are cured — we save over 4 million people every year. We rely heavily on research, technology, and education to achieve our mission.

With 815 million people hungry and 1.1 billion people without safe drinking water, we ask for your help on World Food Day.

91% OF ALL PROCEEDS GO DIRECTLY TO FIELD PROGRAMS.

Action Against Hunger will honor Nina and Tim Zagat and Professor Michael Golden at their 4th Annual World Food Day Gala on October 16th at the Yale Club in New York City.

RESTAURANTS AGAINST HUNGER:

Restaurants have long been involved in generous fund raising efforts in support of Action Against Hunger’s life-saving international programs – and New York restaurants alone have enabled AAH to help thousands of people regain health and self-sufficiency.

Combining great cuisine with the fight against hunger just makes sense!

Restaurants Against Hunger 2003
This year’s “Restaurants Against Hunger” is growing under the thoughtful leadership of the folks at Miracle Bar and Grill / Miracle Grill in New York City.

Late in 2002, Miracle Bar and Grill / Miracle Grill in New York City invited customers to dine in their establishments during the three days leading up to Thanksgiving and dedicated 50% of every bill to Action Against Hunger’s international programs. Miracle Bar and Grill / Miracle Grill sent a check for $10,000 to AAH—to battle the hunger and poverty threatening the lives of 815 million each year.

This year, the number of participating restaurants has grown, and we invite you to help the fight against hunger by dining at the following establishments on Tuesday, November 25th, 2003:

A SALT AND BATTERY
LA PALAPA
MIRACLE BAR AND GRILL
MIRACLE GRILL
RADIO PERFECTO
RESTAURANT JEAN-LOUIS
TASTING ROOM
TWO BOOTS FAMILY OF RESTAURANTS
