    Last Wednesday, we delivered 68 hot meals to Whitley CDA. This is our new delivery day since we reopened the cafe for takeaway meals. Since we started donating hot meals to vulnerable children in Whitley, we have prepared a total of 369 hot meals. This exceeds our initial aim of 50 meals per week. My aim is to achieve 70 meals every week . Thank you for your continued support.

    Before I specialised in producing Ethiopian food, I was a professional child-minder and I used to cook this wonderful pasta bolognese for the kids. Now I can do the same for vulnerable children in Whitley. Today we managed to deliver 70 hot meals to Whitley CDA. Thank you to everyone for your continued support. Our aim is to continue this for long as we can. Every pound you donate will be spent feeding vulnerable children in Whitley.

    Glad you are providing this service Tutu. Is it a response to present COVID-19 Crisis or an ongoing charity programme? Cheers, Greg
