University supports #ShareYourLunch Christmas appeal

The University is supporting Social Enterprise Can Cook and the Liverpool Echo campaign to raise £10,000 to help feed poverty stricken families across Merseyside this Christmas.

The #ShareYourLunch campaign sees an army of chefs and volunteers at Can Cook, able to provide freshly prepared, chilled meals and deliver them direct to the door of struggling, Liverpool families.

The #ShareYourLunch effort is already underway thanks to early donations received, but in order to extend this to hungry families at Christmas, the University is supporting the appeal to raise additional funds.

Taking action against food poverty

The campaign not only helps families in desperate need – it puts the City of Liverpool at the forefront in taking action against food poverty and setting an example for the rest of the UK to follow.

The appeal can provide Christmas dinner for 4 for around £10. £10 feeds a family of four, £50 can feed five families, £100 can  feed 10 families and so on. The more raised together via the appeal, the more mouths can be fed this Christmas. Staff and students across the University are encouraged to give what you can as every little helps.
