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.
