It's the final countdown! Donations are in, the tree is ready and waiting, the plans are in place... Now all we need is our homeless guests! So they know when and where to come, Luke has designed these bright and cheerful flyers for Michelle and the team to hand out at the Breakfast stations and on outreach nights.
How many cups of hot water can we get out of a 20 litre urn I hear you ask? Well, thanks to this kind donation from Kingdom Coffee we can provide around 150 cups extra each session just from this urn alone. Kingdom Coffee have not only donated this wonderful urn, they have also donated a big box of tea, coffee, sugar sticks and paper cups! The logistics of providing Breakfast In A Bag means that donations such as these help us to help more homeless people access warming and sustaining beverages than ever before.
Breakfast In A Bag is not just about providing food and drink but it is also about distributing much needed, and often overlooked essentials. So we were delighted that Lip Smacker have donated lip salves to distribute to our homeless friends, as these cold winter mornings can be brutal for exposed areas of skin. The gift of lip salves will help prevent dangerous cracks around the lips, which can be prone to infection, as well as providing relief to the agony of dry and damaged skin.
Tetley have a long history of making tasty beverages and it was in 1940 that the first Tetley tea bag machines, known as the grey ladies, were first introduced into Britain. However the teabags were for export only and it wasn't until 1953, when tea rationing was lifted, that us Brits were able to brew up with a bag. Luckily we don't have to wait as long for our morning cuppa as the lovely people at Tetley's have donated 6 cases of their tea - that's (count them) 2880 cups of hot, warming, tea for our homeless friends!
It is hard for anyone to ensure that their diet is healthy but it is especially hard when you are living on the streets. With this in mind Rhythm Foods have given us a boot load of their healthy Coconut & Greens Kefir drink to help ensure that our breakfast bags will now come with an extra healthy boost. ‘Live’ fermented drinks which are dairy free, cholesterol free and with no added sugar these are sure to prove very popular with our homeless friends.
