ENCIRCLES was established as a registered charity in April 2019. It is administered and operated solely by volunteers and is entirely self-funding.
As a charity our work involves distributing food each evening to the street homeless, our friends in supported accommodation and any person who is hungry in the community, including families who are experiencing financial hardship. We also prepare and cook a hot Sunday takeaway lunch and sandwich supper bags to hand out as well as distributing emergency family food parcels and cost of living bags consisting of tea, coffee, sugar and long life milk.
Most of our food is provided by local companies who give us food surplus at the end of each day as well as local businesses who donate fresh produce to cook on Sundays. Throughout the year local churches also supply us with soup and sandwiches and we are supported by the Foodbank, Community Fridge and the Pantry Partnership on a regular basis.
On average we hand out food to 20+ people each evening and to 65+ on Sundays as well as 45+ supper bags. This provides over 950 meals a month to those in need in the local area. Any leftover food is taken to local hostels, so nothing goes to waste.
