Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page. [/p][p]I have started FoodCycle’s [url=http://foodcycle.org.uk/get-stuck-in/breadline-challenge/]Breadline Challenge[/url] today, living off £2.10 a day for 7 days. This week is aimed at raising awareness of growing UK food poverty and also to raise vital funds for FoodCycle. I first became aware of the challenge, when a client was involved a couple of years ago.[/p][p]FoodCycle is a national charity working in 20 locations to tackle food poverty, social isolation, and food waste. Its volunteers use surplus food to create nutritious three-course meals, served in a warm and welcoming environment for people at risk of food poverty and social isolation. Over 4 million people in the UK are affected by food poverty and over 900,000 people have had to access food banks in the last year.[/p][p]Like many other people joining the challenge, I have shopped and planned my food for the week. I have made a couple of large pans of soup, this is planned along with porridge, Quorn Chilli, baked potatoes and beans. I have managed to stay on budget so far.[/p][p] [/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p] [/p]
