Following its very successful launch in early summer, we are running another Veg Pledge to raise funds for our Destitute Asylum Seeker Service shopping budget programme. Through this programme, we give small amounts of cash to help destitute asylum seekers in our temporary project accommodation with their weekly shop.
The people we work with have no form of income. We help them to register for the food bank, but the supply of fresh food is limited and variable. We give each asylum seeker in our accommodation £10 per week to buy nutritious essentials such as dairy products and fresh fruit and vegetables.
You can contribute to Veg Pledge here.
For one month starting 17 October, Localgiving will match fund every £10 raised through their Grow Your Tenner programme.
