Zebra One Gallery and Mason storm join forces to release a Limited Edition Print in aid of Cook to Care
Mason Says: “No one should go hungry, it’s especially upsetting to me thinking a child could go to bed hungry. No child should have to worry about where their next decent meal is coming from. This print drive is for one thing alone, hopefully feeding some hungry people, it’s not about politics or social semantics it’s about hopefully impacting someone’s life in a small and positive way.”
“I for one cannot think of a more worthy cause to get behind.”
All Monies raised will go to Cook to Care a community initiative centered around food. Cook to Care has two main objectives – to serve free nutritious meals for those in need and to inspire a hunger for a better future in young people and prison leavers.
The Everyday Reality
Jojo Sureh, the founder of Cook to Care says “We have all, at some point, been guilty of turning a blind eye or been ignorant of the harsh realities which did not directly affect us; Can you imagine being in a position where you feel you need to justify being entitled to have a bare necessity? Regardless of how well we think we have planned for the future, this can happen to anyone of us. This is the harsh everyday reality for more than 1.2 million people living in food poverty in London and a total of 3 million across the UK”.
We must care, we are all in this together, and even in times of hardship, compassion from others can get us through.
That is why Cook to Care matters
