What’s In A Bag?

What’s In A Bag? When Michelle Clark started Breakfast In A Bag her intention was always to make the breakfasts as healthy as possible. Sleeping on the streets almost inevitably means a very poor diet and she wanted to give each homeless person who received a breakfast bag the best possible start to their day.  The contents of each bag may vary depending on which foodstuffs have been donated in large quantities by our Product Partners, what’s available on a special offer locally or online & which fresh fruits etc are in season and readily available. All bags will typically include cereal or [...]

Paws For Thought …

Paws For Thought … Through her outreach project Off The Streets London, Michelle Clark the founder of Breakfast In A Bag has become known as someone who likes to care for the street dogs that so many of our homeless friends have as pets. For most rough sleepers their dog is their only companion and many will choose to feed their “furbaby” before themselves. Some of these dogs live on a diet of human food and that’s obviously not good for their health.       We regularly receive donations of dog food, treats, and warm dog coats for winter and Michelle’s been [...]

Quotes about Homelessness

Quotes about Homelessness We’ve scoured the internet and gathered together some interesting and powerful quotes about homelessness:   “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted” Aesop   “After all, a homeless man has reason to cry, everything in the world is pointed against him.” Jack Kerouac   “Bleak, dark, and piercing cold, it was a night for the well-housed and fed to draw round the bright fire, and thank God they were at home; and for the homeless starving wretch to lay him down and die. Many hunger-worn outcasts close their eyes in our bare streets at such times, [...]

Thank you KWHPublishing - We wouldn’t be here without you!
