The Food Phone – Eat. Give. Pay It Forward

We are excited to announce a new food distribution service to support people who are or feel food insecure, launched in GlasgowWe would appreciate it if you could let people in your community know of the availability of this service. The main areas serviced are: Calton and Gallowgate, Bridgeton, Parkhead West, Barrowfield, Carntyne West and Haghill, as well as the City Centre.

The project is a partnership between Meals Collective and People Without Labels, the charity who operates The Space at 257 London Road. Its aim is to offer high-quality “pay what you can” meals every day of the week. The Food Phone, will operate a simple pre-ordering system offering healthy nutritious food for all cultures in a fair, inclusive and accessible way. People can pre-order food from an extensive plant-based menu by simply texting MEALS to 07786 202 247 and collect it Monday to Friday between 1-8 pm from Meals Collective’s kitchen located inside Abercromby Business Centre, G40 2DD, and at the weekends between 12-3 pm from The Space, 257 London Road, G40 1PE.

The food is free, however the “pay what you can” option means that people can contribute as much or as little as they can afford. This is a way of paying it forward for the community, with dignity, where people may not be comfortable with free food ‘handouts’ and the stigma of poverty that can go with that. It’s good food that everyone can afford.

The food is 100% plant based and comes in sustainable packaging. Prepared fresh by experienced vegan chefs, the menu includes pastas, curries, stews, pizzas, and more. To see all the available menus text MENU at: 07786 202 247 or follow us on social media. For more info please reply to this e-mail or contact The Food Phone by texting us.

The initial funding for this project was secured through Foundation Scotland from the Coop Food Fund. We have attached a  flyer with all information that can be published and distributed. Also, please stay in touch with us and give us a  follow and share us on your social media.
