Feed 70 vulnerable elderly people in Tooting

Summary

This project will ensure that 50 -120 people each week in London on a low or no income will receive a hot meal & will be befriended each week from now until Christmas. Each week volunteers come together and cook a hot meal and chat to people who will otherwise miss meals and often will not talk to another person for the whole week. People who attend suffer from social isolation, homelessness and mental ill health. This meal allows them a chance to relax and socialise in a warm safe environment.

Challenge

It will help reduce hunger and social isolation of the most vulnerable and needy in society, often forgotten and not provided for by statutory services

Solution

We will be able to provide a hot meal every week, access to fruit and vegetables, tea and coffee and a friendly face to chat to.

Long-Term Impact

Our projects work with up to 250 each week providing them with a source of free healthy nutritious food, mainly sourced from surplus, which enables many families to eat for the rest of the week. With more funding we can provide these adults with cooking lessons enabling families to eat well for a lifetime. We educate up to 50 teenagers every year equipping them skills to shop economically, sustainably and become healthier adults. With more funding we will reach 150 this year.
