Director-producer Suresh Babu, COO of Naandi Foundation Anoop Ratnaker Rao and chairman of Hyderabad Round Table 8 Sujeet Govindaraju shared details about FFC and the vision and mission of Project 511.
FFC was a tremendous success last year with over 1,000 guests from Hyderabad's elite enjoying a unique experience. This year Hyderabad’s top star hotels such as Novotel Hyderabad Convention Center, ITC Grand Kakatiya, Marriott, Avasa and Radisson Hitec will provide the culinary delight. Sri Chaitanya, Cyient, Lakamsani Group, MYK Laticrete and Penna Cements will sponsor the event.
Speaking on the occasion, Anoop Rao said, “I am proud to say that Project 511 works with 1,022 schools and has impacted the lives of more than 5 lakh children since it began. We continue to grow from strength to strength with each passing year.”
Neil Paterson, general manager, Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre and HICC, said, “The ‘Food For Change’ event would provide a platform to raise funds for enhancing the quality of education in government schools.
Hyderabad would witness a grand display of culinary love, under the theme of donation and charity.”
