Together, we've already provided 12,000 meals to families, homeless people in temporary accommodation or moving into permanent accommodation, as well as asylum seekers and refugees in the Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch area. Now we're looking to the future and need your support to feed another 12,000 people over the next year.
From the beginning of the first lockdown to now, Westbourne Rotary Club has gone from a small cooking operation in a club members kitchen to providing more than 60 two-course meals a day from a commercial kitchen, all being distributed FREE OF CHARGE.
From the amazing cooking team, to the superb project managers, all the way to the volunteer drivers, along with key operating costs like premises and making up the shortfall on the much needed ingredients to make the meals, there are a lot of things that need to come together to make the magic at Westbourne Rotary's Feed a Family for a Fiver Project come to life.
From as little as £1 you can help support the magic it takes to provide a healthy and tasty two-course meal.
However, despite these numbers being nothing short of a miracle, making it happen has not been easy, and would not have been possible without the infinite love, support and solidarity from our community since day one.
But we are only just warming up... we want to get the ball rolling and raise £25k to help us on our journey to achieving another 12,000 meals.
It's in your hands...help us to kick-start our journey to the next milestone by sharing our GoFundMe page, fundraising on our behalf, or contributing with donations to fund our work, we need you, our family, our friends, our community, to help make it happen.
Together we can provide a healthy and nutritious home-cooked two-course dinner for families and vulnerable single people. It shows them in this difficult time that someone cares.
You donate £5 to feed a family of 5. We buy the ingredients and cook a healthy traditional meal to individuals and families in crisis, delivered by our dedicated team of volunteers.
· A gift of £5 will feed a family of 5
· A gift of £10 will feed two families
· A gift of £20 will feed 20 people
· A gift of £50 will feed 10 families
· A gift of £100 will feed 100 people per day
· A gift of £500 will feed 100 people for five days
Families in crisis need your help. Please feed a family for a fiver today.
