THE SMILE BRIGADE
During the pandemic, The Smile Brigade have been providing free meals and care packages to residents who are vulnerable and at risk amidst the crisis. In just 44 weeks since they began their emergency food operation in response to the crisis they have provided over 111,000 free meals and 23,400 bags of groceries to residents in need. They have also saved 114.3 tonnes of food waste from the landfill – by turning surplus food donated via charity partners and local businesses into delicious and nutritious free meals for local residents.
Their community led initiative which relies on the support of local people and businesses - needs your help to continue their vital work. They need volunteers to help deliver their meals, residents with their fabulous skills and business with their knowledge and resources to help source food, donations and equipment.
