Appeal for Kitchen Items and Food

*** Help Needed ***

In the current climate, as a charity responsible for the welfare of 102 vulnerable young people in Leicester City, we need to support our young people in following the social distancing guidelines. We are in desperate need of the following kitchen items to help us provide hot meals for our residents. Who can help us by donating any of the items below in new or nearly new condition?

If you can help, please send a direct message to us through social media to arrange a drop off or collection. Alternatively, you can also contact our Reception who can also help safely co-ordinate this on 0116 255 6507.

Chest freezers x 2 (good working condition)
Large baking trays
Kitchen knives
Cheese graters
Cooking utensils (not wooden)
Chopping boards (not wooden)
Tea towels
Plastics tubs suitable for storing food
Dried/canned foods

You may know that we also support rough sleepers through our Y Support Project. Unfortunately, we are having to limit the numbers who access the service at any one time and are providing take away food pack ups where possible. With numbers lower than average, we are still expecting at least 20 – 30 individual visits per day. We are therefore also in urgent need of the below:

Bottled water
Pot noodles
Cereal bars
Multi pack crisps
Multipack chocolate or biscuit bars
Hot chocolate
