The Shoreditch Trust and the Worshipful Company of Bakers
It is with huge pride that I can tell you that since the beginning of April the WCB Benevolent fund has been supporting the Shoreditch Trust in their very worthy project to provide emergency food parcels for those in need. The project is being delivered using the facilities at their WaterHouse restaurant. The food parcels are going to individuals and families who have been identified as being in food crisis either because they are seriously unwell, have been advised not to go out and don't have support networks to deliver food, or have lost their immediate income. In addition to this, emergency food parcels of cooked and fresh food are going out to women who are pregnant and/or have young children living in hostels, stroke survivors who have limited mobility and inadequate support network and young people (aged 16-24) who are living in care, in hostels or care for unwell family members.
The Benevolent Fund, with the generous support of Deputy Master Paul Morrow and British Bakels, Liveryman David Wright and G R Wright Ponders End Mills and Liveryman Lewis Freeman and Dunns Artisan Bakers Crouch End are now supplying the Shoreditch Trust with over 150 loaves of bread and over 100 packs of buns each week to help fill the food parcels.
I hope you agree with me when I say how proud I am we are stepping up to help those who need help most of all in this difficult time.
The photos show bagged up bread ready to go into food parcels, close up of a delicious and nutritious fresh multiseeded loaf, Shop Supervisor Sandra with packs of buns and Lewis Freeman taking bread out of the oven at Dunns.
A huge thank you to all concerned.
Kind regards, Christopher Freeman, Master
