MoMa's Cookies approached me to be a part of their incredible Advocacy Programme which allowed me to select a charity and cause of choice to give back to.
I have selected the First Love Foundation charity, their aim is to tackle hidden hunger in Tower Hamlets, London, by providing emergency food support to people facing crisis. Since 2010 they have supported families in one of the most-deprived boroughs get their lives back on track, not only as a food bank but by listening to each person's story and help them face their crisis in life.
This charity has shown that a simple act of kindness and a meal for someone who is deprived of the simple necessity of food, is the start in helping every individual as well as families in bettering their lives. This charity has a special place in my heart because of all they do and have achieved in a decade of their existence.
A special thank you to this foundation for going the extra mile during COVID-19 Pandemic, prior to COVID-19 the Tower Hamlets Food Bank Centre would support 60 families a month but since this difficult time, this incredible charity has been helping 40 families per day.
