FareShare Lancashire and Cumbria is run by Recycling Lives from the Recycling Lives Food Distribution Centre in Preston. Featuring local charities Ivy Street Community Centre, HIS Provision Community Café, and Eat 2 Feed, this video shows the impact that access to fresh, healthy meals has on individuals and families who would otherwise struggle to provide regular nutritious food for their children and make ends meet.
By bringing individuals together from all walks of life these charities build small communities where people can talk about the problems they are facing and find ways to combat them. In some cases, the people facing daily hunger are also homeless, and these services may act as a stepping stone to coming off the streets and finding a stable home.
Here at Recycling Lives, we work hard to help vulnerable people face the world with a smile on their face. It’s about more than just food, it’s about fighting the social issues society faces and making the world a better place.
