Food is Love... Everyone involved, does it with love throughout the entire operational chain – be it when they donate food items, go on a shopping spree to add additional items to the food packs, when selecting and packing the food, or delivering it to those in need.
Read on to see if you qualify for support, and can submit an application for food support. The "Food for Thought" program aims to provide access to food to those in need who are not being assisted by other organisations or institutions.
Many have stereotyped the individuals that seek food aid. But when you are forming your own opinion, please just make sure you're not falling for any of the common myths described below.
Fill in the form below to submit the application on behalf of another person or family that you have identified as being in need of food support. Once you have submitted the application, someone from our office will contact you to take the process further.
When you get in touch with the "Food for Thought" for the first time, it can be difficult to ask for help, and we understand that. But keep in mind that we work to create a positive, safe and welcoming environment to make it easier to access food should you require assistance.
When you or your business make a food donation, you bring hope to a family’s table and benefit our communities across the Algarve. The bowl of cereal that fills a child’s stomach, the can of soup that warms an elderly person, the lunch that sustains the person working hard at finding employment—these are the situations that make the work we do so rewarding.
Funds raised enables us to buy items that we do not have in stock, so that we can provide balanced packs of food, toiletries and in some cases even pet-food. It also enables us to buy such items as fresh vegetables, chicken and fish that we can distribute straight away to the beneficiaries of the program. Namely to families in need.
On a regular basis we require the assistance of someone to help with grocery shopping in the Lagos area. Such shopping tops up the food donations that we receive from our donors, and which is used to make-up the 14 day packs for destribution to individuals or families in need.
