The EurAfrican Forum organisation stated that chef Elijah Amoo Addo, founder and chief executive officer, Food for All Africa, will deliver a pitch about how food can be a link between people and regions to establish stronger relations for Europe and Africa at a lunch hosted by the Forum on the first day of the event (July 4, 2019).

“The EurAfrican Forum is a major platform which addresses the realities of Europe’s influence on Africa and the need for Europeans to work with youth-led African organisations and entrepreneurs to address challenges facing both continents. I am resolute on partnering with European partners to explore youth-led opportunities driven by technology and would ensure Food for All contributes to an efficient and sustainable means of nutrition for all by 2032,” said Addo, who will also be collaborating with the event on the preparation of the Forum’s setting menu, along with Portuguese chef Marcelo Tomás.

The Food for All Africa Programme, which recovers surplus food from supermarkets, restaurants and other sources in Ghana, and distributes it mostly to facilities for children, the elderly and mentally-challenged persons.

Addo said three out of five children on the streets of Ghana were out of school because they did not get enough to eat. The programme works with community-run, free schools to provide meals.

Addo left full-time work as a chef to start the programme in 2012. He was inspired by a mentally-challenged man who recovered food from street vendors and shared it with others in need.

The programme also runs SDG 2 (Zero Hunger) crop and livestock farms and stores to foster agricultural employment and distribute rural products in urban centers. Addo aims to grow his network of public and private-sector partners with the help of a stakeholders’ forum and the government.
