A trio of Bromley students have helped launch a global campaign highlighting food poverty.

The student chefs were in London’s Leadenhall Market to challenge people to spend five days feeding themselves for just £1 a day next month.

Louis Thorne and Francesco Verrilli, of West Wickham, and Jessica Muccio, of Bromley, were joined by their mentor at Westminster Kingsway College for the launch of Live Below the Line.

The campaign is co-ordinated by the Global Poverty Project, who aim to educate people that 1.4billion people worldwide survive every day below the £1 threshold.

Last year more than 20,000 people across the world took park in the challenge, raising around $3,500,000 for anti-poverty initiatives.

This year 50 UK chefs, including Hugh Fearnley Whittingsall and Jean Christophe-Novelli, will be working to promote Live Below the Line.

The challenge begins globally on April 29. For more information, visit livebelowtheline.com/uk.
