Free Food Parcels

Grant from LCH Community Fund

 

We are delighted to have received a grant of £10,000 from LCH Community Fund to run a Food poverty project. 50% of the grant is to refurbish our ground floor kitchen to prepare hot meals.

We partnered with Jannaty Women’s Society based at the Centre to prepare food packs for school children during the festive holiday period. We handed out free food packs for school children during the last two weeks in December.

We are now in discussion with Montem Primary School, Hornsey Road, Islington, London, N4 to continue with the food project once our kitchen has been refurbished. We aim to start in February – initially once a week.
