Pascal Aussignac’s India Cycle-Challenge for Action Against Hunger
In October 2014 Chef-Patron Pascal joined 20 other Chefs & Industry figures in a 400km cycle challenge across Rajasthan in India in a bid to raise over £100,000 for the International humanitarian charity Action Against Hunger.
· India has the highest rate of child malnutrition in the world accounting for 54% of all undernutrition – related child deaths worldwide.
· In Rajasthan alone 20% of all children under five are affected by severe wasting.
· Action Against Hunger has worked in India since 2011. All funds from this challenge support nutritional programs and ongoing training & support across Rajasthan.
“I am a proud supporter of Action Against Hunger and the Rajasthan Cycle Challenge provides a fantastic opportunity for Chefs and Industry Figures alike to come together and make a real difference. I haven’t sat on a bike since I was a child and so this challenge really excites me, even more so to do it with so many wonderful people. On s’amusera bien!”
