by Tracey in London, England, United Kingdom

New stretch target

As the demand increases for a healthy Sunday dinner, we would extend the 'Sunday Best' free meals service to other areas in South London including Lambeth, Croydon, Southwark, Merton, and Wandsworth.  

 


Together we can provide a healthy and nutritious home-cooked Sunday dinner for families and vulnerable single people facing homelessness abuse during the Covid-19 Emergency

BACKGROUND 

JAGS Foundation is a youth empowerment organisation, founded by director and CEO Tracey Ford following the tragic murder of her only son, James. After many years of supporting people who suffer trauma, Tracey recognises that the best way to change our environments is to believe harmed communities can heal. 

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP

  • to raise £4000 to provide 800 meals to vulnerable families and young people who have experienced homelessness abuse during the Covid-19 crisis.

How does this work?

You donate £5 to feed a family of 5. We buy the ingredients and cook a healthy traditional meal to individuals and families in crisis, delivered by our dedicated team of volunteers.

  • A gift of £20 will feed a family for 4 weeks 
  • A gift of £40 will feed a family for 8 weeks
  • A gift of £50 will provide 25 meals  per week

Why is this service needed?

The covid-19 pandemic means that families below the poverty line are in crisis. Many are suffering from isolation, loneliness and severe mental health problems. And limited incomes mean buying fresh food is a huge struggle.

Together we can provide 800 meals to individuals living in desperate circumstances.   You can share the #feedafamilyfor5  link with families and friends by copying the links here:  Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin so we can reach more families in need. 

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO.

While food banks are a lifeline for many households because of furloughing and loss of income,  families need some extra help because of the rising cost of essential food items and limited incomes in the coming months, the uncertainty of how individuals will manage financially is a huge worry for many.

TESTIMONIAL:  

"I work for the NHS Sterile Service cleaning instruments for surgery, that's my night job.  I also a parent rep and am a parent of two children on the special needs spectrum 8yr old with autism and 11yr old with social communiciation disorder and set up my own whatsapp group to support other parents.  Your Sunday dinner helps me out so much because I do not have to stay awake and cook because I know your delicious food is coming. Thank you so much for your great delivery service"

HOW YOU CAN HELP 

Every £5 can provide a hot home-cooked meal to an individual or family. 

And not only that, it shows them in this difficult time of the Covid-19 pandemic that someone cares.

If you know of any chefs or home cooks who would like to share a recipe,  come and join us on a Sunday afternoon between 1 - 3 pm  for 'Sunday Best' Live on Facebook.
