In the coming weeks we organise an alternative food distribution platform at Abattoir to deliver healthy food to people in precarious situations. The food surpluses we normally use are not sufficient now, that’s why we ask your help.
Thank you all very much! So much financial and warm support gives us a huge energy boost. It motivates us to continue in the future. The past weeks have shown us that access to healthy food is not evident for many people in this city. We therefore continue to need your support to maintain COLLECTMET Deliveries as an important lifeline for the many people and organizations that come to collect fruit and vegetables every week.
Our growfunding is not yet over. So don't hesitate to support us.
Take care! Keep safe!
Warm regards and thank you,
In times when markets close down, food surpluses are scarce and people have to stay in their homes, CULTUREGHEM and SAMENLEVINGSOPBOUW deliver healthy food to people's homes.
Due to the closure of the largest market in Brussels, COLLECTMET cannot count on its food surpluses in the coming weeks. And here’s where we need your help.
Thanks to a first financial donation of the King Boudewijn Stichting we have been able to launch COLLECTMET DELIVERIES. In the coming weeks we organise an alternative food distribution platform at Abattoir to deliver healthy food to people in precarious situations.
Our deliveries are done by electric cargo bike to keep social contact as limited as possible and rely on a network of voluntary drivers to make the larger deliveries.
But the little food surpluses that we have access to are not enough for the 33,000 essential daily portions we plan to bring to people in need in the next 8 weeks. That is why we ask for your financial help to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables!
To thank you for your donation, we invite you to a collective cooking session in COLLECTMET's Open Kitchen when this crisis is over! We will contact you after the campaign to arrange this. Hope to see you soon!
