NO ONE HAS EVER BECOME POOR BY GIVING

Cool Story - NO ONE HAS EVER BECOME POOR BY GIVING

Feedo Needo is a nonprofit project of UKCAB established in 2006 with the mission of reaching out to those in need by starting a food distribution drive in Birmingham. It is a community organization that provides food and necessities to those in need in their local community. They make contributions to everybody despite race, gender, religion, and ability through which they aspire to generate compassion and love among people.

Before starting this project, it was reported found that more than 1/4 of a million people in England are homeless with hot spots outside London being in Birmingham, Brighton, and Luton. Since then, they have been offering free food between 9:00 AM and 2 PM Monday to Friday till before the pandemic and now too.

Its main mission is to empower individuals by garnering confidence to use skills for the good of their community by sharing resources or giving volunteering opportunities. This allows individuals to connect with the less fortunate and inspires sympathy among them for everybody in need regardless of race color and gender. They want to end hunger in the UK since the everyday people in the UK go hungry from either low income or being homeless. They believe that a simple box of food can make a huge difference in intervention crime loss of housing and mental health problems.

Their main focus is based on Arabica café established since 2018, where 90 people are fed every day with tea, coffee, and sandwiches. Due to government restrictions during COVID, they had to close the cafe but continued with takeaway services even when food banks in Birmingham were underfunded and unable to provide. They even extended their services beyond the city to health workers by bringing them parcels of food since most of them worked extremely long hours and we were unable to shop and stock up on their supplies.

They have a very strict system of logistics where they maintain spreadsheets of daily attendees to the food bank and then inventory the amount of food they need for the next day. They also recruit volunteers daily to help with jobs like packing items food, distribution, serving customers, and engaging with the community members. These volunteers are supervised by a project manager who is this possible for the training of volunteers on safety and health regulations followed by the café.

They have been awarded much appreciation from the government and the community for serving vulnerable people during a year of food shortage. The cafe services which were conceived just before the pandemic, have continued to grow, and become a source of inspiration for other similar organizations benefiting communities. Before the pandemic, they were serving food to 60 families a week which turn to 200 families a week during the pandemic, and this year it has reached 500 in number. The cafe also collects donations for other charities as well like just recently they were awarded certificate of appreciation by Shaukat Khanam Memorial Cancer Hospital Pakistan for raising 22,640 pounds.

 Due to increasing food prices, there are a lot of people who do not have access to food leaving we don't need a lot busier than ever. At the heart of their mission are the food banks which consists of all the foods collected from suppliers which are then inventoried and later distributed to children and the homeless population as well as struggling families. They also operate on the front lines in Bradford Manchester to distribute food at cafes to young families, homeless patrons, and anybody who needs access to food.

Students from the University of Birmingham’s action against homelessness society have been dedicated to volunteering for the food bank as well as fundraising through charity shops where all of the proceeds and donated clothes are sent to Feedo Needo. If you would like to donate to the virtual charity shop, then kindly visit @uobactionagainsthomelessness on Instagram.
