REQUESTING YOUR SUPPORT
This year we cooked and delivered 15,717 meals, helping elderly, vulnerable, self-isolating, unable to access services, unwell, low-income, in difficulty families and individuals.
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 until July 2021, we cooked over 26,000 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’.
