SUPPORT FREE FOOD DISTRIBUTION DURING THE PANDEMIC

 

REQUESTING YOUR SUPPORT

From the beginning of May until April, we cooked over 22,000 plates of plant-based food and delivered them to our partner organisations for distribution to homeless and ethnic minorities in Glasgow, South Lanarkshire, South Ayrshire and Edinburgh as a response to the COVID19 crisis. We were very honoured to work with the following partners during this period:
The Marie Trust', 'Help for the Homeless', 'The Homeless Project', 'Glasgow Night Shelter', 'B.J.O Amara Association', 'Blue Triangle', 'Wallace of Campsie House', 'Hillcrest Futures' and 'Streetsmart'

In March we did 2,039 plates helping elderly and vulnerable, those self-isolating and unable to access services, low-income families or individuals, frontline workers, anyone else in difficulty.

Our hot healthy and nutritious food helps to boost immunity and reduce the need to get daily meals in ways which would increase the risks. Currently, we provide our services to:

1) 'B.J.O Amara Association', 'Go Dharmic' and 'Springburn Parish Church' organisations that are serving various vulnerable communities in Glasgow to meet their demands for hot food. 

2) Local communities in South Lanarkshire in Lanark, Larkhall, Carluke, Lesmahagow, Kirkmuirhill, Auchenheath, Blackwood, Rigside, Douglas Water, Douglas and Coalburn areas. If you live in any of these areas book a hot meal delivered to your door here.

We are very grateful to Route XL for providing us with their route planning software free of charge. It makes our food deliveries so much easier.
