Chef Vikas Khanna Sets ‘Dine With Smile’ In Motion
To commemorate the Joy of Giving, Smile Foundation has joined hands with Burrp! Chef Vikas Khanna and the foundation launched the ‘Dine with Smile’ campaign that encourages dining responsibly by bringing together restaurants and diners from across the country in an endeavor to raise support for nutrition of underprivileged children.
Face Of The Movement
Having been an active part of Smile Foundation’s Nutrition for Education campaign since the beginning, Vikas Khanna will further raise awareness through fundraising events and campaigns as its goodwill ambassador. Speaking on this occasion the Five times Michelin starred Chef said, “One in every three malnourished children in the world is from India. The consequences are long-term and it prevents children’s overall growth, learning ability, going to school and a chance to come out of the vicious cycle of poverty for yet another generation. Thereby it also prevents the country’s growth.
“The objective of this initiative is to raise awareness on malnutrition and its overall impact on children and to encourage more people to join this cause and support to bring the much needed change. Through the medium of this initiative, we will not only be able to provide nutrition to underprivileged children but also help them to get better health therefore better education and a brighter future”.
