This April Blackburn Youth Zone is embarking on an ambitious campaign to provide a minimum of 4,000 meals. The campaign aptly named ‘ZONE to HOME’ aims to provide 500 boxes, containing a family meal for 4 and 100 meals every day throughout April.
Over the Easter bank holiday weekend 500 boxes containing all the ingredients to make a meal for a family of 4 and recipe card will be distributed, created by well known TV Personality Chef and resident Executive Chef of Northcote, Lisa Goodwin Allen. These boxes are to support the most vulnerable young people and families with low or no income, during these unprecedented times.
The recipe that has been created is easy for the family to follow at home. Food parcels containing these ingredients, recipe card and a chocolate treat will be given out on Friday 10th April which will enable families to cook, have fun and enjoy a meal together over the bank holiday weekend.
In addition, Blackburn Youth Zone will continue to provide hot meals to young people and families everyday throughout April. This ambitious challenge of not letting any family go hungry over the long bank holiday weekend and throughout April is a result of the Youth Zone having to close its doors recently, following government instructions, and is now only open to children of key workers.
