Food support for local people
Last May, in the middle of lockdown, FYA joined forces with the Bengali Workers Association to provide much-needed food to citizens in the area. FYA attracted over 100 volunteers and, at its peak, each week they were cooking, packing and delivering over 300 hot meals to people’s homes.
FYA would like to take this work further and meet the needs of residents beyond food to create a more connected community both online and offline.
The hampers included a meal, a series of activities and some winter socks. FYA engaged with We Make Camden by including craft kits that they hoped would encourage residents to imagine the neighbourhood of the future and introduce the mission around Camden’s vibrant and sustainable estates.
