Help support Food from the Wood

We did it
On 22nd July 2020 we successfully raised £6,777 with 159 supporters in 110 days

I am raising money for a charitable cause that is very important to me so please donate and help me reach my target

Started on 3rd April 2020 Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom

Our G20 Youth Festival is a young person led, postcode-based festival within Maryhill, Glasgow. The G20 young people have developed an amazing project, 'Food from the Wood', which is a type of meals on wheels initiative, where we are supporting the most vulnerable people in the community due to the COVID-19 crisis.

In the last week we have delivered over 500 emergency food packages and supplies to those who are in desperate need. However, we are struggling to meet the demand, and this is where we need your help! We really need the support from the wider community and those in Glasgow to help us continue this vital work!

Below is quotes from local residents who are using our services. 

"This project has lifted up my spirits. Even know I live alone, I realise that I'm not alone. There is so many kind people out there! I don't feel so isolated anymore. Thank you so much!" 

"This has been very beneficial to me, having someone coming to the door with a hot meal, when I can't get outside at all. I've really enjoyed the food, especially the vegetable stew. Thank you!" 

If you can, please support our project. 

Thank you, 

Team G20 xx
