A charitable chef is urging people to ‘share the love’ this Valentine's Day by helping Ghana’s vulnerable communities.

Food for All Ghana founder Elijah Amoo Addo works to feed those in need through Ghana by collecting excessive food products and redistributing them.

He has a “Lovers share Love’ programme this Valentine's Day where individuals and couples can “show love” by joining a trip to rural villages in the Volta region to “feed them, teach, learn and help build and inspire the vulnerable.”

People who go along will be able to help feed those in need by assisting in cooking and serving the meals.

The programme will also include sightseeing and “soul-searching” with packages ranging from day trips to overnight stays in hotels.

Amoo Addo and his group of volunteers spend their Saturday’s visiting various vulnerable communities around Ghana for the “Share Your Breakfast’ programme where they use donated goods to serve nutritious meals.

The February 13 - 14  event will commemorate the essence of love, he said.

He started Food for All Ghana last year, inspired to stop food wastage and feed those in need. He approaches companies for donations and over the past year has been feeding those in need through though Ghana.

He has a three prong approach to halting food waste and ensuring everyone gets to eat. There’s the free breakfasts and soup kitchens which make use of donated foods, a farming programme designed to help the vulnerable help themselves through sustainable crop and livestock farming, and thirdly, a forum for stakeholders within the food industry to combat supply inefficiencies within the food supply chain.

Amoo Addo was selling tickets for the Valentine's trip and asking for donations to redistribute including cash, clothing, books and food.
