Wagamama help with GORTA’s Soup for Life appeal

Wagamama are offering ‘soupport’ to GORTA as part of their Soup for Life appeal, taking place during National Soup Week, beginning on Friday 8th April 2011.

From 8th-15th April 2011, for every Chicken Ramen soup purchased in Wagamama restaurants across the Republic of Ireland, Wagamama will donate €1 to GORTA, to help with their overseas work.

GORTA, Ireland’s longest established overseas development agency aims to improve long-term food security primarily in sub-Saharan Africa. Their vision is a world where there is no hunger and where the poorest rural communities have the means to create a positive future for themselves and their children.

Wagamama say they are proud to support this vision by taking part in the Soup for Life appeal.

"Throughout its 12 years in Ireland the Wagamama philosophy has remained unchanged: to combine fresh and nutritious food in an elegant yet simple setting with helpful, friendly service and value for money" a spokesperson said.  

"Positive Eating & Positive Living"

The Wagamama ethos, developed since the first restaurant opened in London in 1992, is to combine great, fresh and nutritious food with helpful, friendly service and value for money.

The Dublin city centre restaurant on South King Street opened its doors for the first time in 1998 and they expanded to Cork in 2005. In July 2010, they opened a 2,500sq ft restaurant seating 100 in Blanchardstown.
