With the closure of other centres and food outlets as a result of COVID-19, those who are young and homeless have limited access to food. The Ace of Clubs takeaway food service has proved highly popular and is in much needed demand.
LandAid’s £10,000 grant will be used to continue Ace of Clubs’ takeaway service for another five months, providing hot food and access to a foodbank for people who desperately need it. The grant will help to provide 12,000 meals over the five-month period.
The Ace of Clubs is an open access day-centre in South London. Due to the outbreak it has had to shut its traditional day-services but are now providing much needed emergency support to its local community.
