In light of the events of recent days and the campaign to ensure no child should go hungry over the upcoming half term and beyond, the club has made a £500 donation to Knowsley Kitchen.
With the incredible work Marcus Rashford has done to highlight the inequalities across the country, it is only right that the club steps up and helps to make a difference in our incredible community. It is clear the Government at this time do not see hungry children as a priority, so it is up to people in a position to help to make a difference.
The Knowsley Kitchen, a partnership with access to fresh food for all at its heart. Knowsley Kitchen is inspired by Lucy Antal (Alchemic Kitchen) and Dave Critchley (executive chef at Lu Ban, and founder of Liverpool Independent Delivery Service)
All moneys donated to Knowsley Kitchen via One Knowsley will support those households who need a little extra help at this point in time. This is about beautiful food, nourishing communities and building a sustainable, educational and delicious approach to enjoying food within, and across, all our communities in Knowsley. Real food for real people.
At the time of writing, there are upwards of 2000 childrens packed lunches being prepared for next weeks half term, this will make a huge difference to ensure that some local children will not have to go hungry.
Co-Chairman Jamie Weston said “Having grown up as a kid in the 80’s and early 90’s I remember how tough it was at times to see my parents put food on the table, I cannot believe 20-30 years later we have a government refusing to put measures in place to keep children fed, it is a basic human right!”
