What is Food For All?
Food For All (“FFA”) is a registered charity which distributes around 900 free,
nutritionally balanced meals to the homeless and disadvantaged on a daily basis. FFA targets the homeless, single parents, the elderly, the unemployed, people suffering from mental and physical disabilities and the marginalised.
FFA is unique, as unlike other food distribution services, FFA is based on the philosophy of community self-help and is geared towards enabling homeless people to learn new skills. FFA is committed to tackling homelessness and social exclusion by helping people to make informed choices and find solutions to their problems.
FFA aims to promote and develop self-help initiatives with people who are homeless or socially excluded by helping to install self-confidence and responsibility in the service users by engaging them in operation procedures and encouraging voluntary activity.
This year, FFA has become more self-sufficient as more supermarkets have got involved by donating fruit and vegetables which are used in the preparation of the meals.
FFA is pleased by this result as one of its aims was to reduce its expenditure and increase recycling initiatives.
