Take Sam. Sam is 16. She had to leave her home after a family breakdown. She has been couch surfing for a few months, but now she has run out of places to go. She’s alone and afraid. Her schooling has been affected and she is failing on attendance. She’s become depressed and isolated.
But Sam can’t think about any of this now.
Because it’s her first night on the streets and she has nothing to eat.
How can anyone be expected to solve these complex problems while worrying about where their meal will come from tonight?
The world is a brighter and kinder place with a full stomach.
Alex Makes Meals was started by one Uni student who wanted to feed people consumed by worry and stress at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. Now, we are a movement led by a youthful and innovative legion of volunteers.
