The People's Takeaway
TARGET REACHED - But let's keep going!!
The People's Takeaway is a radical new volunteer-led project to support families in crisis within East Durham by providing hot meals delivered to people's doors just like a normal takeaway (but FREE!). We have recently completed a successful crowdfunding campaign to raise £10,000 but we still need your support. Donate today to support the ongoing costs of the project and help us feed even more local people in crisis.
Remember that if you are a UK tax payer then please check gift aid as MyDonate will collect it on our behalf.
WHY IS IT NEEDED?
- The former Mining Community of East Durham is one of the UK’s most disadvantaged Communities
- East Durham Trust has delivered over 2,000 food parcels in the last 12 months. The Trust has also fed over 2,000 Children as part of their Holiday Hunger provision
- The need is growing—”Welfare Reform” is hitting the most vulnerable hardest and the introduction of Universal Credit will increase the need—more sanctions, more crisis
- However hard we try current support has an effect on dignity and carries stigma
East Durham Trust helps the communities of the former district of Easington which is made up 20 distinct areas, most of which are former Pit villages that continue to be hugely affected by deprivation following the closure of the Pits. We run a wide range of projects to help the community fight disadvantage.
FEED (Food Emergency East Durham) our food parcel service has helped us to support thousands of families and individuals in crisis since it was established in 2011 but the need is growing everyday and we need to find new ways to support local people living in poverty.
