The Whitechapel Centre & Tackling Hunger
It is with great delight that we can announce an agreement with the White Chapel Centre Homeless Shelter based in Liverpool where we will help to counter hunger within the homeless community by donating at least 50 meals each week, equating to over 2600 over the course of a year.
The White Chapel Centre work with those who are struggling to find a place to live, where they aim to prevent and resolve homelessness, social exclusion and housing poverty by providing practical, realistic, tailored support so that each person can find a route out of homelessness, maintain a home and achieve their individual potential. Starting in 1975 to meet the needs of homeless people in Liverpool, The Whitechapel Centre now employ over 120 staff, have the support of over 60 fantastic volunteers and are governed by their Board of Trustees, truly are a wonderful cause helping our beautiful city.
Since the national lockdown started, The Whitechapel Centre have had to change their approach of how they can help, with changing from cooking for people in their centre to providing food boxes. This is a tricky challenge though due to the accommodation limitations faced by some of our city’s most vulnerable people, which sees some people being temporarily homed with as little as a solitary kettle or microwave. Alongside this, they have seen a decrease in donations and fundraising due to the inability to perform every day activities, so now is the perfect time if you would also like to help out with their plight to help fight homelessness in Liverpool.
This agreement sees My Fresh Box take food to their shelters every Monday and Wednesday to aid with their constant battle of tackling hunger of those who aren’t fortunate to have a constant residence. This issue is something that most people see as a given, yet some others aren’t as lucky and find themselves battling this issue day in day out. We’re hoping that our fresh and nutritious pre-cooked meals will be of great use for these people, and will help provide them with the nutrition the body needs as well as being able to keep them full for longer and help combat their hunger.
