THE GIFT OF A MEAL CARD SCHEME
A Random Act of Kindness for the Elderly, Vulnerable, Isolated & Homeless
Eating with others is a very social thing to do and many folk don't have the opportunity - they may live alone, be too nervous to go into a café on their own, or may be homeless. This scheme is to give those people the chance and the choice of eating with others, thereby reducing their sense of isolation or loneliness.
How it works:
Donations are used to purchase Meal Cards (£5 per card) through the CCP and the cards are distributed to agencies that are supporting the elderly, isolated, homeless and vulnerable.
Many Christchurch cafes are supporting
the initiative, accepting the meal card in their cafes in exchange for a meal. This gives the recipient the freedom and dignity to choose where, when and with whom they share a meal.
The Gift of A Meal Card aims to:
- Reduce social isolation and loneliness by bringing together those in need of company to share a meal together
- Provide a hot meal to a homeless or vulnerable person in need
By donating just £5 you can make a difference today!
