With every burrito or bowl purchased, a meal is donated to someone in need.
With our partners Rise against Hunger, an international hunger relief agency, we have provided millions of nutritious meals to disadvantaged communities across Africa, Asia and the Americas.
Locally, Zambrero partners with Foodbank to fight hunger in Australia, providing a meal to Australians doing it tough with every purchase from our Grab and Go range.
It’s great food and a good cause all rolled into one.
Every time someone purchases a burrito or bowl at any of our restaurants, Zambrero sends a nutritious meal to someone in need in the developing world via our distribution partner Rise Against Hunger.
Meals donated by Zambrero are packed, stored and distributed by Rise Against Hunger around the globe, primarily through school feeding programs. Zambrero customers can also get involved to pack meals at Zambrero's annual Meal Packing Day.
The impact achieve by our Plate 4 Plate initiative wouldn't be possible without the efforts of our customers and distribution partners.

Rise Against Hunger meals donated by Zambrero are a nutritious combination of rice, soy and dehydrated vegetables, fortified with a vitamin mix, specifically designed to supplement the diet of malnourished individuals.
The meals have been created for easy transportation so they can reach remote areas anywhere in the world. All ingredients are rice-based so they suit the diets of most individuals as well as being vegetarian, culturally neutral and easily blended with locally available spices, vegetables and proteins.
Zambrero’s contribution per meal is based on the cost of the raw ingredients and does not include packaging, shipping or meal distribution, which are covered by Rise Against Hunger and its partner organisations.
In Australia, partnering with Foodbank, Zambrero donates a rice and beans based lunch or dinner or a breakfast meal consisting of cereal and milk with every Grab & Go range purchase.

On Friday 20 October 2017, Zambrero with support of Rise Against Hunger hosted its annual meal packing events across Australia, packing nutritious meals and sending them to those who need it most.
Zambrero's Meal Packing Day is a fun community event where our dedicated volunteers work in teams to funnel the ingredients into packages, led by specially trained Zambrero staff members. Fifty people can package 10,000 meals in just a couple of hours!
Thanks to the efforts of our volunteers this year, we packed a record breaking 460,000 meals... And next year, we’re looking to beat that record yet again!
