The Interesting Eating Company is set to donate a selection of breakfast ingredients to The Whitechapel Centre to offer rough sleepers a hearty morning meal.
The gesture coincides with the start of Breakfast Week, part of the ‘Shake Up Your Wake Up’ campaign which aims to raise awareness of the health and nutritional benefits of breakfast.
Nichola Lee, director of The Interesting Eating Company, says: “ We knew we had to mark Breakfast Week by doing something special. With this in mind, we want to give something back to the Liverpool community, which is why we have devised a plan to help out the city’s homeless people.
“We will visit The Whitechapel Centre to donate plenty of delicious breakfast ingredients, such as bacon, sausages and eggs, to be cooked up to allow everybody who comes through its doors to enjoy the comforts of a hot morning meal.”
The Whitechapel Centre, based on Langsdale Street, is a leading charitable initiative that provides crisis intervention to people living in temporary accommodation and those at risk of becoming homeless. The centre is open 365 days a year to offer a place to shower, change and eat.
Andrea Edwards, fellow director of The Interesting Eating Company, adds: “With homelessness sadly on the increase, we want to concentrate our efforts on a compassionate charity that is working to combat the wide scale societal problem, which is why we chose The Whitechapel Centre.
“During Breakfast Week we will be encouraging other local businesses to get involved and do their bit to help out. We are also currently in the process of approaching our suppliers to see if they will match our donation and help us to help others.”
