Action Homeless Makes Urgent Food Appeal

June 05, 2018

Action Homeless is making an urgent appeal for donations to help those affected by food poverty.

Having consistently seen over 170 customers access the Food Stop a month in 2018 our stock of key goods is running low.

We are appealing for donations of ambient food so we can continue to support individuals and families in crisis.  Items such as tinned goods, rice, UHT, and cooking oil are staples and it is our aim to meet the incredibly diverse range of dietary, cultural, and religious requirements of the people of Leicester. With your support, we can continue to meet these needs on a daily basis. Please help us tackle food poverty and homelessness in Leicester.

Community Support Manager Tim Adkin said ‘We have recently experienced a dramatic shift. Up until late last year we had a surplus of tinned soups, beans, fruit, and vegetables. However, consistent high demand has severely depleted our stocks and now we find ourselves having to stretch between deliveries of donations.’
