Orbis Challenge: STREET CHEF MALAWI

STREET CHEF MALAWI is the focus of 2018's Orbis Challenge "Sport With a Purpose" Campaign!

Street Chef is a small, local initiative designed to get healthy locally grown food onto the streets of Malawi - where malnutrition remains a serious issue.

The Problem:  UNICEF states that "there has unfortunately been no change in children's nutritional status since 1992".  Around two-thirds of children under 5 years old are anaemic, and over a third are stunted - prevented from growing and developing properly.  Among adults, nutrition deficiencies underpin unacceptably high disease and mortality rates.

The Situation: Street food in Malawi is mainly processed and mass-produced, sold at a low price to try to make it accessible. Schoolchildren are often given chips and meat cooked in large vats of oil for lunch.

The Solution: Street Chef stations will use locally grown ingredients, minimal oil, and no preservatives or processed ingredients.  Their stoves use minimal fire wood - nutrition development doesn't have to contribute to environmental problems such as pollution and further deforestation.

The Idea:  To have Street Chef stations, using specially designed stoves, in a number of locations around Blantyre to provide healthy, affordable lunchtime snack options for students and those working in the city.  

So... what will my donation do? 
All of the fundraising from this campaign will go towards launching Street Chef within the Blantyre area.  This will include building the stoves, training local teams of chefs to run each station, and supporting Street Chef in their first year of business.
