We all fall on hard times, unexpected expenses arise that put pressure on our finances. It can take time to recover financially from these pressures, while we look for savings to be made. Food is often one of the first places we turn to in order to make savings. For many that may mean no meals out or takeaways that month, not too much of a hardship eh? It’s a happy day when payday comes round again and we can enjoy the usual delights.
But, couple those hard times we all endure with bigger life events, such as a
- diagnosis of ill health or bereavement
- redundancy or a delay in your benefits
- breakdown of a relationship or homelessness
With already depleted resources, food quickly becomes so low a priority it falls off the list completely. This all sounds so remote, doesn’t it? But it is sadly real and affecting more and more or us. At the moment due to Covid 19 restrictions, we will humbly pass your generous donation directly to our local food bank. When restrictions lift, we will look to work directly with our local food bank to donate actual meals to those in need.
Whatever is going on around us, whether it’s within our control or not, we all deserve to eat well. Food poverty and food insecurity have been very real concerns in this country for too long and sadly remains to be the case in 2020. It’s a growing concern that strikes a nerve for us. So, this is our way of contributing towards a solution and offering a little ray of sunshine for someone on an otherwise dark day.
Don’t underestimate the power of your one small act of kindness coupled with another and then another. Take a moment to imagine if you all purchased one extra meal with every order? How incredible your act of kindness can contribute to a huge wave of love. A collective feast that has real power to not only feed but really fuel and nourish the body and mind. Feeding the hungry is never ever going to be a bad choice it will only ever lead to a good result.
