The Cooking 4 Change Foundation

The brainchild of artist Dick Frizzell, his business partner Christian Kasper, and TV presenter Erin Simpson, the Cooking 4 Change Foundation is on a mission to make sure there is enough good food to go round for everyone. To make that happen, all the profits we make go towards our ultimate goal – helping to create A World Without Hunger

The Cooking 4 Change Foundation supports local organisations who do the right thing by helping to feed people and reduce food poverty. We do this through creative works that aim to raise funds and create awareness of the global problems around people struggling to get access to good food – the fuel of life.
