Three times per week, Amy and I cycle around the city centre delivering food parcels to homeless people. Yesterday the parcels contained baked beans, soup, bananas, oranges, bread and sweets. We also had optional popcorn, fizzy drinks, toilet rolls and toiletry products. We find that ten parcels per session is just about right.
They are very much appreciated not only by people who are still rough sleeping, but also by people in temporary accommodation who aren’t getting food delivered. We have also been dropping off fruit – about 60 pieces at a time – at the youth hostel, where a lot of homeless people are currently staying.
