PROVIDING FOOD TO THOSE IN NEED

COVID-19 FOOD PARCELS

Planet Mercy UK coordinated “The OutReach Project” at the beginning of the pandemic, bringing together Organisations and Institutions from around the borough to support those affected . 6 Organisations led by Planet Mercy UK distributed over 8,000 parcels in Rochdale, Oldham, Ashton, Heywood, Bolton, Bury, Middleton and Manchester over a period of 12 weeks.

Planet Mercy UK are currently still supplying 40-50 emergency Food Parcels weekly to affected families and individuals and are committed to supporting the needy for as long as the need arises. The Food Parcels contain bread, milk, tea bags, fruit, veg, snacks, pasta and hot food which is cooked weekly by local caterers and volunteers. Each food parcel costs between £13 and £15.

REACH PROJECT

The Reach Project was launched to support families in need with household items and emergency financial assistance . To date, the project has assisted 137 Families with household items that vary from washing machines, gas cookers, fridge freezers to cutlery and baby items. Additionally we have supported 13 Families since the corona pandemic with household items, mainly families whose income has been affected and domestic violence victims under social care.
