Takeaway Ordering App Helps Feed Hungry Children

Hands up if you love ordering takeaway? I know we love to have takeaway every now and again with Chinese and pizza being right up there as our favourite online food orders. We go to our takeaway app and place a an order without much thought to how we are spending our money until now.

I was recently introduced to a food ordering and table reservation service called Kukd.com and they have completely changed how I order takeaway food or book a table at a restaurant. I want to be a more conscientious shopper, and the Kukd app is helping me to get a step closer to that goal, without making a huge change to my lifestyle.

Can we first of all take a moment to think about all those people that go hungry in the world. In the 21st century I still find it unbelievable that there are children going hungry. Did you know that Bangladesh is one of the world’s poorest countries? Children as young as 5 years old are forced to go out to work to help feed their families. Child malnutrition is one of the biggest problems Bangladesh faces with over 7 million families surviving on less that $1 per day.

Living in the UK, it can be very difficult to relate to the issues effecting different parts of the world. If you have never visited a Third World country it’s difficult to grasp the challenges and poverty these families are facing, but we should make an effort to find out more about it. There are also simple ways that we can help to make a difference and that’s where Kukd.com comes in.

By changing your food ordering app to Kukd.com and placing your takeaway order through them you can help to provide a meal and bottled water to a hungry child in Bangladesh. No matter how big or small your food order is, Kukd will provide a child in Bangladesh with a nutritious meal to help combat child hunger. Doesn’t that sounds like a great way to help these families?

They also support your local takeaway business by charging them reasonable fees to use the food ordering or table booking service. Instead of charging high fees and spending large budgets on TV advertising they choose to support local business to grow as well as combating real issues faced by impoverished children.

If you are concerned about Third World issues or want to help prevent childhood malnutrition, but were struggling to know what to do, then by downloading the Kukd app or using the web version the next time you order a takeaway, you could be doing your bit. Sometimes the world’s problems can seem so big, that we are paralysed to know what to do to fix them. We might not be able to make a big change overall, but making a small change to someone’s life can be equally as valid.

Have you downloaded the Kukd app yet?

    I haven’t heard of this app before but will be looking to see if it works in my local area, what a fantastic cause and such a simple idea, I use topcashback when shopping online, I may only get 50p back but it all adds up, we recently moved so changed broadband providers and I received £125 cashbook which cleared this week perfect timing for Christmas, I also changed gas and electric supplier so received £31.50 which I’m waiting to clear xx

    I have not heard of the kukd app and this would be great as i am always getting takeaways and it would be great to also be helping out

    I’ve not heard of this before but it sounds like such a good idea. It’s so important to give back where we can.

    That’s really good that this app is giving back, it’s scary to think how many kids are going hungry x

    This is the first time I’ve heard of this app but it sounds brilliant. For many people in the UK, a takeaway is part and parcel of everyday life and if it helps feed a child in a third world country I’m all for it!

    I love ordering take out (when I’m feeling lazy and money allows!). I’ve never heard of this app though and am so glad you have brought it to our attention. What a great thing you can do whilst satisfying those naughty take away cravings.

    We have used the Kukd app in the past. I didn’t know you could do this though. I’m more inclined to use it now. 🙂

    What an amazing idea, that something so simple can give so much back. I’ll definitely be downloading the app, even though we don’t order takeaway often it still all adds up

    This is such an amazing idea! We order takeaways on average of about once a month so if it can help out a charity in some small way I’m all for it. What a great excuse to indulge in a pizza a little more often!
