Supporting homeless and vulnerable people in and around Maidstone, Kent UK

Food for Thought can chase it's roots back 30 years to Patricia Mccabe and Mary Harvey along with pupils from Maidstone Girls' Grammar School providing a soup run. From that 1986 Maidstone Christian Care was formed to help homeless and vulnerable people. In 2005 after a survey in Maidstone showed a number of areas where people were starving. Some children were going to school hungry. Older people were making the choice between heat or food. Maidstone Christian Care created a Community Food Share Scheme to collect surplus food and other items from local traders and redistribute them to school breakfast clubs and individuals and families in crisis.

Thanks to volunteer drivers our two vans are busy nearly every day of the week. Our Ford Transit has only been possible with help and support from Maidstone Borough Council, Maidstone Community Support Centre and Maidstone Lions. There are many volunteers and sponsors to thank for their support in maintaining one of the first food share schemes in the country. It operates exceptional well thanks to all the hard working staff at Maidstone Day Centre. More information on Friends of Maidstone Day Centre (to come shortly on the Maidstone Day Centre website).
