The MICHELIN Guide and StreetSmart

Working together to tackle homelessness

Michelin Guide StreetSmart Great Britain & Ireland

The MICHELIN Guide and charity StreetSmart are once again partnering to help raise funds to tackle homelessness across the UK. StreetSmart’s 2021 campaign kicks off on Monday 1st November and we want to encourage as many people as possible to get involved.

What is it and how does it work?
While enjoying a meal out in a restaurant in November and December, you can spare more than just a thought for those living on the streets by donating through a fundraising scheme. During the last two months of the year, look out for stickers in the window and information cards on the tables to identify restaurants taking part.

A voluntary donation of £1 will be added to your bill and, at the end of each month, the restaurant will pass the money on to StreetSmart to distribute between their chosen charities. These specialist charities help the homeless with their basic needs, as well as providing resources, mentoring and skills training to help get them back on their feet.

StreetSmart’s operational costs are paid for by their sponsors, LandAid, so every penny raised goes directly to those who need it. Since 1998, StreetSmart has raised over £10.5 million for the homeless.

The 2021 Campaign
For the past year and a half, Covid-19 has impacted the daily activities of many charities, while also creating a greater need for help than ever before due to increased social and economic challenges. This initiative provides a great opportunity for those who can afford to eat out to support the restaurant industry while also helping those who don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
