Food has always been such an important part of what we offer our vulnerable and marginalised young people here at New Horizon Youth Centre, but over the 6 months since we received funding from the Regent’s Place, food has become even more important. We have brought in new partners to our catering project, for example The Eat Club now cooks a healthy and nutritious meal every Tuesday at our daycentre for an average of 60 people daily and we have trained one of our locum workers who is now able to train our young people in Food Hygiene, so that they may make their first steps to a career in catering. Additionally, the funding has enabled us to reach out to organisations in London with an interest in youth homelessness and this has resulted in a number of in-kind donations which have increased the food offer available to young people. For example, we recently received a donation of tinned and dried goods and another of delicious baked goods which was much appreciated added extra at the end of a very busy day at our daycentre. Thank you Regent’s Place for making all this possible.
