As part of Knorr’s Corporate Social Responsibility programme, 200 meals were served to families who benefit from the services of the St Jeanne Antide Foundation. The NGO’s aim is to support vulnerable individuals and families who are suffering due to very difficult life circumstances, many of whom are sliding into poverty and are socially excluded.
Chef Sean Gravina cooked up a comforting baked pasta meal using Knorr’s enriched flavours and this was delivered to the NGO to be distributed to those in need.
“Often we forget how life can throw curveballs at us and put us in unthinkable situations where we are unable to provide for our families without the help of NGO’s such as the St Jeanne Antide Foundation,” commented Chef Sean Gravina, Knorr’s Brand Ambassador. “It’s a pleasure to be associated with brands like Knorr who care about those who may be passing through difficult periods, and seek ways to help wherever possible.”
“We’re very happy to be able to play a small role in assisting those in need within our community,” explained Lianne Dalla-Giacoma from M&Z Ltd, importers and local distributors of Knorr. “As part of our annual corporate social responsibility programme, we commit to initiatives where our brands can make a difference and we felt that the St Jeanne Antide Foundation are more than deserving of some support.” Last year Knorr also gave meals to St Joseph’s Children’s Home in St Venera.
Knorr forms part of the Unilever UK Ltd portfolio of food brands, who fully supported the initiative. “Knorr believes that wholesome, nutritious food should be accessible and affordable to all. And whilst that is unfortunately not a reality for everyone in today’s world, Knorr have pledged to help families create healthy meals they can afford.” Whether it is creating high-quality products, offering simple chef-developed recipes, or supporting organisations and initiatives that provide access to healthy foods, Knorr remains committed to its long history of making good food available to everyone.
