Halal Food Festival 2013
Human Appeal were the official charity sponsors of the Halal Food Festival 2013 (Sept 27 29) held at the ExCel, London.
At the 'World's Largest Halal Food Festival', visitors were able to sample a diverse range of halal foods from South America, to South Asian and even the Philippines!
We were among the 100 stalls present, and, although we were giving out free, delicious olives, our purpose was different from the other exhibitors.
Our stall allowed the public the opportunity to donate olive trees to the West Bank, food parcels to Syria, or help in our campaign to fight global hunger. We also received hundreds of signatures urging Prime Minister David Cameron to raise more awareness of the global hunger crisis.
The festival featured live cooking demonstrations by top chefs such as Jean Christophe Novelli and Cyrus Todiwala.
Human Appeal had an exclusive stage at the event, which saw performances by Mesut Kurtis (Macedonia) and Saif Adam (UK) – two dynamic performers who entertained the crowd with their music.
