Plant-Based Charity Seeks Support To Continue Providing ‘Vital’ Meals

1 Minutes Read

The cookery school and plant-based charity Made In Hackney has called for financial support to continue delivering vegan meals to London households in need.

Over the COVID-19 pandemic, the charity has provided more than 50,000 ‘vital’ meals to the Hackney community. 

To keep providing meals into the new year, the charity is hoping to secure a further £30,000.

This will take the total funds raised to £145,000.

‘Huge relief’

Founder, Sarah Bentley, said the additional funds would be a ‘huge relief’.

She added: “The extension to March would allow us to make another 20,000 meals to households who have been economically impacted by the crisis. 

“We are supporting a lot of households with additional medical needs, who are shielding or have been economically impacted.”

‘Community connection’

Each person the service supports receives six nutritious vegan meals a week cooked by volunteers.

The food is delivered by bicycle and the charity also provides welfare calls.

Sarah says the service is more than ‘just food’ and rather ‘community connection’.

COVID-19

Earlier this year, beloved British actor Olivia Coleman helped the charity deliver meals following the COVID-19 pandemic.

Before the pandemic, the charity ran free cooking classes for the community, including refugees and low-income families.
