The gift of banishing painful hunger

Food and drink is an important part of our lives and our culture, and it’s all the more apparent at Christmas, the average household blows an incredible £174 on food and drink on Christmas day alone. Not only does food provide essential nutrients to stay healthy, but the simple act of sitting with friends and family plays a key role in social inclusion – even if you can’t stand each other on the magical day…

Thousands of people give food to homeless people on the streets – but having reliable access to regular and varied meals can mean the difference between life and death. While we all look forward to our Christmas dinner, let’s think about giving the ‘gift’ of food, and how it can help homeless people stay fit and healthy whilst they get their life back together.
