Food Poverty in the UK

Food poverty within the UK is a growing problem with 1 in 5 people now struggling to put food on the table. Despite London being one of the richest cities in the world, there are thousands that experience food poverty on a daily basis, ranging from the homeless to low-income families.

Due to the severity of this issue, Muslim Hands is opening a new community kitchen for the homeless, low-income families and needy children in Hounslow.

The kitchen will be free and open to all, and will serve 100 hot, nutritious meals twice a day, seven days a week. Here, people will be able to enjoy good food in a warm, safe and friendly environment all year round.


Most importantly, the Open Kitchen will provide those experiencing food poverty with a community centred space, where they will be treated with respect and dignity.

This should be encouraged and publicised more on the news seeing how they are quick to condemn Muslims with every bad thing that goes on, well done Hounslow Muslims

2019 need more of this.

“A charity is due for every joint in a person on every day the sun comes up. Acting justly between two people is charity. Helping a man with his mount – lifting him onto it or hoisting his belongings onto it – is a charity. A good word is charity, and removing obstacles from the road is charity.”
What a great example of human kindness. Fair play to them.

Let us live this life by the principle of spreading goodness. Even when we do not get goodness from people, let us still choose goodness.

This life will never forget the good that you offered to someone, the anxiety of someone you helped to ease, the happiness you gave to someone who was broken and tearful, the smile you shone in someone’s face, and your accompaniment of someone lonely!
Wonderful

May your days and nights be those of goodness, and may we implement it in all that we do. 😃

Let your dealing with another person be of three types: If you cannot benefit him, do not harm him. If you cannot gladden him, do not sadden him. If you cannot speak well of him, do not speak ill of him. 🙃

I'm launching a start up very soon which I can't go into too much detail about. But it will also deal with a social cause. My end aim is to rehome every homeless human in the UK by the time I die - if not sooner.
Brilliant!
Well done guys.
Well I wish the rich people join in and help places like this.. in the UK if the rich people did something.. there would be no homeless people out there in the cold but it a a shame money is everything for them...
Hotter than the sun!
Well done all concerned.
Fantastic work
yes a great gesture
2019 and we're saying this in the greatest wealthiest city the world has known
who'd have thunk it?
Projects like this really do restore your faith in humanity.
Everyone can contribute time & effort. Whether it’s something as small as helping carry someone’s bag or as big as volunteering for a local charity, all types of help count.😘

Mankind are representatives of the Cosmos; this station calls us to responsibility. We as people need to respond in trying to contribute to healing and rebuilding our communities.🙏🏻

The way of purity and sincerity is to look at everyone–friend and foe–with the eye of sincere concern and mercy.

Don't people have to get a referral for food banks?
It's already opened few weeks ago.

Yes, a referral is typically required.

You can get one from a limited range of people (religious minister, social worker, doctor etc)

This provides a bundle of basic foodstuffs to last for 3 days.

Hardly glamorous, very hard to abuse!
Never see a slim person at a good bank yet were told obesity is a massive problem in this country?I'm not sure what to believe anymore.😪
Great post - and breath of fresh air to see something like this on here rather than usual arguments over Apple devices etc. Much heat added.

What on earth does that mean ? What a pointless comment does your body shape determine your monetary wealth ?
Dont see too many people doing this people are quick to demonise everyone thats poor and needs support mental health services are being cut people are iller due to crappy diets and air pollution.People are fat because crap sugar food is cheap that good gmo free organic fresh food educate yourself for free on Ben Greenfields or onnits podcast build more community cafes and plant more food in green land gardens.
Good to see this up and running, walk past most days and it’s got people in
When a person is forced into a situation in which they have to ask others for assistance, their doing so is generally indicative of an underlying need. If a person does not want to assist them, the least they can do is not exacerbate their situation by speaking unkindly, thereby humiliating them.👌🏻
