Eradicate and End the Hunger
The crux of our mission is not only to serve the wider community but to empower all individuals by giving them the confidence and opportunity to use their skills for good, whether that is providing a safe environment where opportunities and resources can be shared with our patrons or giving our volunteers a glimpse into the lives of those less fortunate than themselves which allows a wider scope of empathy among them. Our faith inspires us to be an organisation built on compassion, and motivated by love.
Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. A simple box of food makes a big difference, with foodbanks helping prevent crime, housing loss, family breakdown and mental health problems.
Feedo Needo’s mission is to help eradicate food poverty and provide care to those experiencing homelessness whilst having an overall positive impact on the local communities that it serves regardless of race, colour, gender or age, we are here to help everybody in need and end food poverty in the UK once and for all
The Feedo Needo strategy aims to help ten times as many homeless people as they do now, which equates to over 50,000 more people by 2030, and Feedo Needo is working hard to meet these targets.
