Households have until Wednesday 25 November to register for a delivery of free food and gifts for Christmas, writes Josie Armitage.
Instead of a planned Christmas dinner for families in Leeds, The Real Junk Food Project (TRJFP) will deliver a free food hamper and gifts to EVERY household who registers in West Yorkshire throughout the month of December.
6,260 households have registered so far with the clock ticking to the deadline. To register your household, click here.
Founder of TRJFP Adam Smith said:
“Let’s not let Covid-19 beat us this Christmas and let’s make sure no matter what everybody gets food and gifts this Christmas. This year has been an incredibly tough year for absolutely everybody and no judgement will be made.”
They also want to feed 10 families every weeknight for free with a Christmas meal. From 2 to 23 December (17 nights), 10 families from the same household (up to six) are invited to dine and enjoy a Christmas buffet.
Food will be provided by TRJFP and cooked by staff and volunteers of MyThai. Families will also receive presents and festive fun completely for free!
Real Junk Food Project was founded in Armley and ran from Armley Junktion for many years.
