Plate 4 Plate initiative gives 15 million meals to those in need

For every burrito or bowl purchased at a Zambrero restaurant, a meal is donated to someone in need. Zambrero’s ‘Plate 4 Plate’ initiative has been built into the core of the business, ensuring the company is “giving back and making the world a better place”.

This is not a passing ‘feel good’ claim as Zambrero has announced it has donated over 15 million meals through the initiative so far and is on its way towards achieving its goal of donating a billion meals by 2025.

The meals are made from rice, lentils and soy, and include 23 essential vitamins and nutrients. Communities receive these packs and then use what local ingredients are available to make meals, primarily via school feeding programs.

Zambrero works closely with hunger relief agencies to distribute the food to more than 74 countries, including Australia. Rise Against Hunger distributes the food globally while Foodbank Australia distributes meals locally.

Zambrero recently celebrated opening its 150th Australian restaurant. The franchise now has over 165 restaurants worldwide. Zambrero is holding its annual volunteer meal packing day, to pack meals for distribution working with its partners, on 20 October. It will take place across five metro cities in Australia.
