SUPPORT FREE FOOD DISTRIBUTION DURING THE PANDEMIC
REQUESTING YOUR SUPPORT
In March we did 2,039 and in April 1,987 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' and 'Go Dharmic' 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.
From the beginning of May 2020 until May 2021, we cooked over 24,000 plates of plant-based food and delivered them ourselves and 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', 'Streetsmart', 'Go Dharmic', 'Springburn Church' and 'Glasgow North Community Food Initiative'.
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.
