Bed poverty project launched
Our bed poverty partnership with national charity Zarach successfully launched in July 2023. To date, we have delivered 6 beds to children in the Liverpool city centre area and are keen to support even more. This project is dedicated to helping children and families who are living in poverty crisis. We see the problems that poverty causes every day, and we understand that more should be done to help. We have the skills, passion and drive to make an immediate and real difference. If you would like to support this project we are actively recruiting volunteers. For a volunteer application form or to learn more email liverpool@Zarach.org .
Right to food
Micah Liverpool will be supporting Feeding Liverpool’s Right To Food Hunger March. Feeding Liverpool are joining the Right to Food Campaign in an emulation of the unemployed worker’s movements in the 1920s-1940s which mobilised unemployed workers, trade unions, and civil society to call for national action to end hunger. Feeding Liverpool wants to support community food spaces to get involved in the Right to Food Week of Action and join the march. As a key member of the Feeding Liverpool network and an organisation that holds two community markets and two foodbanks in the city, we see it as our duty to support this campaign. You can too by going to Liverpool Hunger March on Saturday 23rd September to learn more.
Harvest Festival donations
It is that time of year again when we begin to think about the upcoming events in the church calendar, the first of which is the harvest festival. Micah Liverpool has always received generous support from our local churches and schools around this time of year. Unfortunately, we are still in need of that support. Harvest is a time of year when the community is drawn together to celebrate all that God has provided. At Micah Liverpool, we use this time to remind people of the work we do and to ask for help and support. 2023 has seen Micah Liverpool maintain delivery of our foodbanks and community markets and support over 400 people per week, after a challenging few years for people in all sectors, not just the charity sector, we have seen a consistent level of need higher than we would have expected at the beginning of the year. Again, Micah Liverpool needs food donations and financial donations. If you can support the work we do please donate food at our donation point at the welcome desk at Liverpool Cathedral or donate online at www.justgiving.com/micahliverpool. If you would like to offer support in any other way, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 07932842337.”
