At Be Enriched we've always marketed ourselves as providing more than food.
Our canteens are a place to develop new friendships, develop skills and improve well being.
We know our guests very well, all their issues, personal and societal as well as the latest edition to the family.
But most importantly over the years we've realised thta many do not recieve the support and benifits they are entitiled to. Sometimes it's because they haven't applied, sometimes because they don't think they will qualify, but mainly it's becasue they don't know about it.
With this in mind we have develeoped a leaflet alongside many other Wandsworth based organisations detailing all of this information.
After 15 months away from our guests it is with great pleasure we can annouce that we are re-opening our very first community canteen.
IT'LL BE DIFFERENT OF COURSE.
We've had to limit the amount of people to 20 and our volunteers to 6. We'll be doing table service for food and tea as well as checking temperatures on arrival. But at the end of the day we'll all be sat together to enjoy companionship and a hot meal - which will be joyus.
We'll still be delivering to 75 households across the brorough some groceries and a hot meal and slowly we hope to bring people back to face to face meetings as the rules relax and more people are vaccinated.
It's been a difficult year overall, we've lost a few friends, we've lost a lot of income but we haven't lost our anticipation and appetite for this day.
