Van for Food Deliveries To The Most Vulnerable
Aug 8, 2020
We are raising funds for a Mini-bus / Van that we can use to collect food from Fareshare, Costco, Co-op stores, Tescos who have kindly agreed to donate surplus food for us to distribute to the most vulnerable in Brent.
To reach all those who need food and essential supplies we will need the Mini-bus/Van to reach them. We can purchase decent Mini-bus for £10,000-£15000, however, if we can raise more funds we can purchase a vehicle that will last us for more years, cover costs for essential supplies and future programmes for young people. We have also received confirmation of a donor that will match fund every pound donated up to £5,000 to help us reach our £15,000 target.
We are currently providing 150 people with food parcels and 1400 meals a week. While we have a good team of volunteers we are struggling to get the food and supplies to all those who need it due to lack of transport options.
After lockdown is over and we are able to resume our youth programmes and take young people on developmental trips we will be able to fully utilise the mini-bus/van to:
-Continue food collection and distribution to the most vulnerable
-Allow young people with physical disabilities to attend our youth and community centre
-Run weekly and daily trips (during holidays) for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
