REQUESTING YOUR SUPPORT
In 2021 we cooked and delivered 18,035 meals. In South Lanarkshire we delivered to homes of those self-isolating, elderly, vulnerable and unable to access services, low-income families and individuals, frontline workers and anyone else in difficulty.
In the first quarter of the year, we delivered food to the following organisations in Glasgow B.J.O Amara Associations, Go Dharmic Glasgow and North Glasgow Community Food Initiative that needed help in serving various vulnerable communities in Glasgow to meet their demands for hot food.
Currently, our hot, healthy and nutritious food home deliveries are available to low-income, elderly, unwell families and individuals. This service is available in local communities in South Lanarkshire in Lanark, Larkhall, Carluke, Lesmahagow, Kirkmuirhill, Blackwood, Rigside, Douglas and Coalburn areas. If you live in any of these areas book a hot meal delivered to your door here.
During the pandemic, from the beginning of May 2020 we cooked over 34,000 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’.
