EAT4HOPE launched in November 2016 and we are looking for founding restaurant partners with a desire to support a small, focused, grass-roots organisation where money really does go a long way.

The scheme is easy to set up and administer. Our partners at Rebel. and The Hope Foundation will work with you to set up your EPOS and accounting systems ahead of going live with the scheme. There is also no cost to your business and once up and running, it’s as simple as writing a cheque or making a bank transfer at the end of each month.

You will be provided with table cards, posters and a welcome pack explaining the details of the scheme, including some FAQ’s. We can also hold a training session with your team on the history of the organisation, the details of EAT4HOPE and how and where the money that’s raised is spent.

Please consider joining us today and supporting a great cause with a zero-cost scheme that really will change lives.


Wild Frontiers Travel and partner NGO, The Hope Foundation are offering one founding restaurant partner the chance to win the trip of a lifetime to visit Calcutta. Enjoy some of the world’s best street food alongside visits to some of HOPE’s key projects throughout the city. 

The trip will be awarded to the partner who raises the highest amount of money after the campaign has been running for 12 months. Use this for yourself, or as an incentive for your team; it’s up to you. The prize includes flights, accommodation and transport for five days for one person. The Hope Foundation will provide guided visits to their projects, with a food tour of the city provided by a local food writer. 


“It was through an informal version of EAT4HOPE that I was first introduced to the work of The Hope Foundation when I was running a pub in 2009.

“When the London office of HOPE was set up, my boss’ sister was appointed to the board and it was only natural we hosted the launch party. As a business, we wanted to stay involved and so started adding a voluntary donation to each guests’ bill.

“A few months in and I wanted to see where the money was going, so I visited Calcutta to see the magic happen for myself. It’s a cliché to say this but the trip changed my life. Fast forward seven years and I’ve lost count of the number of visits I’ve made to the city. I’ve also recently set up an office in Mumbai and intend to split my time between the two countries. HOPE will continue to be a huge part of my life as will Calcutta.

“HOPE really does change lives. And Rani and Puja, whom I’ve sponsored and seen grow up over several years, prove that. They’ve grown into empowered, independent young women with the brightest possible futures. 

“And all this started with asking people for £1 at the end of a meal.”
