Lumberjack Cafe are teaming up with Southwark Foodbank to distribute meals to those most in need during the Covid-19 crisis

by Mike Biddulph in London, England, United Kingdom

We're Lumberjack Cafe, a small charity-owned business in the heart of Camberwell, South London. 

When we're not in the midst of a global pandemic we are passionate about employing, training & mentoring local young people who need a step up into paid well as serving delicious food, speciality coffee & loads more!

But right now we need your help with something slightly different.

Working together with Southwark Foodbank we're making and distributing simple, healthy and delicious meals to people who are facing food poverty.

We need your help to make 3,000 meals for families in need in our community.

These are tough times and too many people are going without food. Our local foodbanks have never been more needed, but right now they simply aren't getting enough donations in. 

We got in touch with Southwark Foodbank -  which is located just half a mile from our cafe - and they told us that they were struggling to meet the growing demand they were facing.

Thanks to funding from Southwark Council and the London Community Foundation, we've been able to get our partnership off the ground, and have enough money to deliver 4,500 meals to people in our community who need them. 

But we know that 4,500 meals won't last very long and, while this initial funding will soon run out, the demand won't.

Will you help us make and distribute an extra 3,000 meals?

Working with the foodbank team we've come up with simple, healthy sandwich and fruit lunches, which we'll be carefully preparing every morning so that they arrive in the hands of those who need them in perfect condition.

We've worked hard to keep costs as low as possible so that we can deliver as many meals as possible. 

Every £3.25 you pledge, buys another meal for someone in need. One less meal to prepare, one less thing to worry about, in these unsettling times.

We'd love you to join us as we embark on this next phase of our life in lockdown. We know sandwiches & fruit can't change the world ... but they might brighten a day.
