Food for thought Scunthorpe was founded in early 2019 to support and aid Scunthorpe’s rough sleeping community.
Volunteers work in outreach teams to give out food/drinks and essential items. Food for Thought offer friendship and support for the complex lives of these individuals.
This year Food For Thought are launching “Food for Thought Shoe Box appeal.”
For anyone who would like to take part or for any schools or associations please see the image below for suggestions when creating your box.
Their project for the winter months is to support and give shelter and warmth in kit items of sleeping bags and tents where they can.
