Island Network delivers 2,000th meal

Emdad Rahman

THE ISLAND NETWORK’S Covid-19 Support Group on the Isle if Dogs has delivered its 2,135th food pack since the Lockdown started. Island Network volunteers distribute weekly meals and food packs to over 150 needy residents on the Island two to three times a week.

“I am proud to say that, including today, since 21st February we have distributed over 2,135 meals and food packs to local elderly and vulnerable residents,” said Island Network Chair Maium Miah Talukdar.

“I am also really proud that we, as a team, are making a difference in the community. We are at least making people smile during this crisis! Once again, a massive thanks to our volunteers and to One Housing Group for funding us for the last 15 weeks.

“I would also like to thank all our Island Network partner community organisations and our sponsors – Canary Wharf Group, Nisa Local, Docklands Halal Grocery, the Bhaji take away, All Seasons Foods, and Rakesh Patel from Cyclops Mews. We are grateful to them for supporting our COVID-19 outreach work. Without such widespread support, it would have been impossible to serve our vulnerable residents.”
