Winter Food Collection for the Needy, Luton, UK

Volunteers from BAPS Charities in Luton collected food for the needy and homeless in December 2020 as part of its on-going commitment to serve the local community. The collection was part of a nationwide drive across 12 centres around the UK, with BAPS Charities supporting a number of local charities during this particularly difficult time.

This year’s collective effort did not include clothing due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions. However, more than 200 tins and plenty of packaged food was deposited at NOAH Enterprise. They provide a practical, empowering and caring service to people who are homeless, particularly those who are temporary or entrenched rough sleepers, and those who are marginalised and socially excluded, or have simply fallen into poverty.

Priyav Shah, a lead volunteer for BAPS Charities, shared, “2020 has been a challenging year for everyone in Luton, particularly for the vulnerable. The work and people at the soup kitchen at Noah Enterprise Welfare Centre are truly amazing, and we hope our donation of food provisions helps bring some comfort to those in need.”
