Celebs for Camden


The Project
Every day 900 healthy meals are cooked and distributed in Camden to homeless / disadvantaged and struggling students.
The ingredients are donated by local supermarkets, short dated products. We divert 10 tonnes of food from going into landfills every week. In this way we do our bit to save the environment and increase the health of Camden’s most marginalised communities.
Homelessness in London has increased by 20% in the last year, at the same time, due to recession, London councils have cut the funding to most of the day centres which were already grossly inadequate.
This letter is a plea for help, going out to Camden’s celebs to get involved in this crisis situation.

I receive phone calls daily from Citizens’ Advice Bureaus, libraries and police requesting help as they have somebody who is not entitled to income support or housing, and requesting help – “at least a hot meal will prevent that person getting into crime”. This is not Bob Geldof looking for millions of pounds for “Live Aid”, this is the small grass roots local project with a budget of £80,000 per year, half of which we can collect ourselves. The rest is the shortfall. The budget is so low due to the great commitment of the volunteers who are happy to serve out of love.

Making a change, putting the heart back into the community

Watford Eco Garden

FFA’s environmental garden in Watford, which was designed and created by homeless and disadvantaged people, has been running very successfully. 250 schools visit the garden every year and children learn about eco-friendly gardening and protection of the environment through recycling, composting using a wormery and the use of solar panels to pump water and create electricity.
