Intouch Foundation plans to launch foodank
7:00am Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
A mobile soup kitchen which serves hot meals and drinks once a week in a town centre plans to open a foodbank.
The Intouch Foundation has been reaching out to homeless and deprived people each Wednesday evening from Church Green, Keighley, for the last four-and-a-half months.
The group also operates in central Bradford.
Keighley co-ordinator Khurm Mehzar said: “We hope to start the foodbank in October, though we can’t confirm the venue yet.”
As part of the drive to support the group’s work, Mr Mehzar and at least 30 other people are taking part in a sponsored walk up Snowdon this Saturday. The coach to North Wales leaves from the Cliffe Castle main gates at 5.30am, but anyone else who would like to take part should first contact Mr Mehzar on Keighley@ intouchfoundation.co.uk or call 07578 623993.
