Story

It's great that we may have a white Christmas but imagine you and your family waking up in snow and ice, or in temporary shelter and are starving. There are over 300,000 people in the UK who are homeless or sleeping rough. London has 4 times more than Scotland and Wales combined according to Shelter Charity's finding as reported in The Guardian. 

Many of these are families. There was a report last week on LBC radio where a volunteer was speaking of one mum whose breast milk had dried up as she hadn't eaten regular meals in so long & her baby was wailing. There is so much food that goes to waste which is why we love what City Harvest London does. Collecting & repurposing food that would have otherwise been thrown out.

It was started by the amazing Laura Winningham, who has built something seriously spectacular. Started only a couple of years ago- City Harvest London collects food from restaurants, food markets, and grocery stores & have repurposed over 600 tonnes of food to feed the homeless. 

Is it any wonder that many huge names have gotten behind them by donating food, vans and more! They count amongst their supporters Sainsburys, Marks & Spencer, Ocado, Nandos, & shedloads more.  But they need much more help to get more food to those in need. 

This charity has won many awards for their work supporting our beloved London community and those in need. They have a huge heart and an amazing team of people. Check out their site and you will see how fantastic they are. They feed tens of thousands of Londonders (including families) who are hungry, homeless and in compromised situations on a regular basis. 

Your donation will go towards collecting food, delivering it, and having teams visit the various shelters and areas where the homeless are, bringing food, hot drinks & lots of love. THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!

We at Unbeelievable Health have huge admiration for this charity & hope you will help out and share this with your friends, family and on social media. Why not email this link to your contacts? 

Many of you helped us help City Harvest out here during The Grenfell Tower disaster and we were all SO GRATEFUL! Your help made a HUGE DIFFERENCE! Let's muck in during these cold winter months to help ensure a bunch of people feel a little less hungry & a bit more cared for over the holidays!! 

Many thanks!!

Sarah Orecchia & The Unbeelievable Health Team
