'He is not a believer who fills his stomach while his neighbour is hungry.' Prophet Muhammed, PBUH

We are a group of friends living in East London and we would like to do something to help our neighbours who are struggling to put food on the table. We would like to put together at least 50-100 food packs containing staple items like pasta, rice, lentils, tea, sugar, cereal, tinned foods etc and Each pack will could feed a small family for up to a month and will only cost us £10, they will then be distributed through Community Links, a local charity which will distribute them to families and individuals who are most in need.

Please help us reach our goal by donating just £10 to cover the cost of the food and delivery.

Why are we doing this?
Our appeal is off the back of an email which we had forwarded to us by a staff member at the charity who wrote about one particularly upsetting case...

...'we are seeing so many advice clients who for various reasons have had their benefits stopped or are in huge amounts of debt and they are going hungry, yesterday I saw a client yesterday who told me that they had to reuse nappies and had no money to feed his family they went to a Foodbank not Newham and were given a tin of peaches! We often refer these clients to the Newham Foodbank and until recently had food vouchers to hand out, the food vouchers have gone and the Foodbank cannot help all of these clients' We are hearing and seeing of horror stories of pensioners searching in dustbins for food, parents missing meals so their kids can have at least one meal a day.
