What is Food For All?
FFA is pleased by this result as one of its aims was to reduce its expenditure and increase recycling initiatives.
What is the problem our project is addressing?
In London, Homelessness has increased in Camden by 20%. We are feeding 1,000 people daily from 5 locations in Central London alone. Due to the recession, the council has cut the funding to most of the day centres, which includes ours in Kings Cross. Services were already grim before the cuts and now the council are unable to offer adequate help to the marginalised community.
How will this project solve the problem ?
We are requesting those persons who have funding available to support our charity and help maintain our project. Within the last 24 strong years, Food For All has achieved great results, national awards, lots of recognition and it still offers a basic life line to the ever increasing disadvantaged people in the community. Due to the drastic cuts the project has become increasingly difficult to maintain, and we are in dire need of financial support from those who want to make a difference.
