    Story

    The current pandemic is leaving thousands of people isolated and unable to get food and supplies. Only yesterday, we spoke to an elderly woman who used "dial-a-ride" so that she could visit the supermarket in the morning, only to find there was nothing on the shelves. Others are scared to answer the door to strangers in fear of being robbed or burgled. Many can simply not afford to "panic buy".

    Roots4life is a charity set up to prevent food poverty and the physical and mental health challenges that are faced from malnutrition, obesity and social isolation. It may surprise you that obesity is prevalent in the poorest echelons of society.

    However the challenge in hand is getting food and supplies to those that need it most. Not only does this apply to those already in need, but to the recently unemployed due to sudden redundancies!

    Roots4life are working in a professional kitchen, making and delivering meals to the vulnerable in the local area. But the team is very small and the number of those getting in contact for help is growing! We need money to ensure we are getting food and supplies out as quickly as possible.

    We must work together in this crisis, and it is small charities like ours that can make a difference quickly without having to cut through company bureaucracy! Any donation is greatly appreciated, please share!

      I am so grateful for your support; without you this initiative would not be possible! We are partnering up with Access Sport's "Team 100" volunteer programme. Together we will co-ordinate volunteers and beneficiaries so that we can effectively reach more people. As well as providing meals, we are providing a 'virtual buddy' service where those who are socially isolated will have a designated 'buddy', who will phone them them every day. A picture of yesterday's deliveries below, mushroom soup and veggie curry were on the menu.

      I cannot thank everyone enough for such an amazing response so quickly!! It really means so so much to those in need. I wish you could hear how grateful they are! Here is a picture of one of the first deliveries this evening. (Don't worry this is as close as we got!) If you know anyone in the boroughs of Greenwich, Bexley and Lewisham who is in need next week please get in touch. THANK YOU. xxxx
