This week McGee continued its support for the London-based food charity, Food For All, donating a further £500 to support their ongoing work in providing nourishing, healthy food for the local homeless, disadvantaged and financially challenged. Over the past two years, McGee has donated a total of £2,500 to this fantastic and worthy cause.
The ingredients for the meals comprise short-dated products which are donated by local supermarkets which helps the charity to divert 10 tonnes of food from going into landfills every week.
Head of Social Responsibility, Marc Byrne said:
“We’re proud to be a sponsor of Food For All. They reflect what is best in London communities. McGee has also worked in these communities for years on numerous demolition and construction projects and we are pleased to support an organisation which represents our community ethos so well. We recognise our part in contributing to the neighbourhood in which we work and supporting excellent charities such as Food For All is a very positive way of doing this.
“Indeed we see the positive impact their work has on the community first hand as their distribution point at the London School of Economics is adjacent to our site at 44 Lincoln’s Inn Fields.”
Peter ‘Para’ O’Grady who runs Food For All, said: “Food For All is a small charity based in King’s Cross, London, cooking and distributing 1,000 free healthy vegetarian meals daily to the homeless community and other disadvantaged people across a number of sites in the London Boroughs. The donations we have received from McGee means so much to us.”
