Vegan entrepreneur Loui Blake has run 50km to raise funds for Feed Your Community – a UK based charity providing meals for key workers and the homeless amid the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

Blake, whose eatery Vegan Dough Co. recently partnered with Deliveroo to launch a delivery system in London, documented the run on social media.

He completed the ‘ultramarathon’ in just under six hours and thanked everyone that had already made a donation.

Feed Your Community

Feed Your Community has currently delivered £30,000 worth of meals to under-privileged children, Nation Health Service (NHS) workers, and the homeless in London.

It has partnered with City Pantry to ‘accelerate’ deliveries and has a fundraising target of £20,000 to reach its target of feeding 2,5000 meals a week.

“Additionally, Feed Your Community has partnered with Magic Breakfast who work providing nutritious breakfasts and expert support to 480 schools across the UK, reaching children at risk of hunger so that they have the necessary fuel for learning at the start of the day,” the charity states.

“One of our restaurant partners produced a fundraising food item for sale as well as offering free school meals for children that are eligible as schools continue to prolong closures.”
