Indian Restaurant Helping Feed Homeless in Portsmouth


An Indian restaurant has been helping feed homeless people in Portsmouth by cooking up free curry.

The Akash, established since 1978, in Albert Road, Southsea lent its support to the charity Don’t Hate, Donate. The organisation runs a weekly food event to ensure that people experiencing hardship have enough to eat.

Brothers Faz and Jaf Ahmed, who manage the family-run restaurant, served up dozens of bowls of biryani at the event in Portsmouth Guildhall. Some of the ingredients used were kindly donated by FB Supermarket which is based in Walsall.

“We are always looking for ways to get involved in our local community and make a difference. We thought this was a brilliant cause so we were only too happy to help out,” says Faz. “There was a great atmosphere and everyone enjoyed the curry!”
