Rola Wala at Trinity Kitchen is celebrating a major milestone after helping provide more than 500,000 school meals to children living in poverty.
The fast food vendor is one of the founding food partners of the One Feeds Two Foundation, which donates a meal to hungry schoolchildren around the world for every meal sold.
To celebrate reaching the 500,000 milestone, and to thank the people of Leeds for their support, Rola Wala at Trinity Kitchen is launching “Feedanuary”, where diners can win a month’s worth of Rola Wala – with one winner announced every week in January. Details are available at www.rolawala.com/feedanuary.
A new dish – the #KarmaKorma – is also being launched. The vegan-friendly sweet potato special is a healthy take on the curry house classic, and is free from nuts, dairy, heavy oil and sugar. Most importantly, for each #KarmaKorma sold in January, an extra meal will be donated to the One Feeds Two cause – meaning two school meals will be donated for each #KarmaKorma sold.
Mark Wright, Rola Wala founder, said: “We’re so proud to be able to say that each time you have a meal at Rola Wala, you’ll directly be helping schoolchildren living in one of the world’s poorest communities.
“Not only does the donation of a school meal help tackle global child hunger, it also helps to encourage attendance at school and improves concentration and all-round health.”
He added: “It’s vital that everyone does their bit to help others, and the food industry is no exception. The food many of us eat is a lifestyle choice, for others it’s survival, but we should all work together to tackle important issues such as poverty and child hunger, and the One Feeds Two initiative is a perfect example of that.”
Dan Wharton, marketing manager at Trinity Leeds, said: “It’s great to see such a popular street food vendor showing support for important causes like One Feeds Two.
“The success of the initiative wouldn’t be possible without our loyal Trinity Kitchen customers and we’re sure they’ll continue to get behind the campaign and support the ‘Feedanuary’ initiative.”
