Feeding The Homeless This Christmas

KBK PLEDGES TO FEED AROUND 60 OF MANCHESTER’S HOMELESS THIS CHRISTMAS

With the Christmas festivities in full swing and many of us sacrificing a clean diet during the festive period to enjoy a Christmas feast, KBK is committed to ensuring the homeless also have a Christmas feast to remember.

KBK has teamed up with the homeless charity, Barnabus, to feed around 40-60 people who are without a home this year at Christmas.

The team will be cooking up a festive storm in the kitchen as they provide a three course meal for those who live on the streets of Manchester City Centre.

The meal will consist of a winter soup, a classic turkey dinner and a traditional fruit crumble and custard. Along with preparing the food at the KBK HQ, the team will also be on hand to serve the three course meal.

Working alongside suppliers Strawberry Catering, Sykes House Farm, and Brakes the local businesses have all contributed in creating a great feast which will benefit the unit itself as it relies heavily on donated food.

But it’s not just at Christmas that Barnabus needs the extra help in ensuring the homeless don’t go hungry, the unit is open all year round to supply a hot meals to those in need – which means relying on food donations from the people of Manchester.

To increase the amount of donations, KBK is urging other restaurants, hotels and cafes to follow suit and donate what they can to Barnabus to help the homeless.

Gary Nixon, owner of KBK, said: “Christmas can be such a time of abundance and we feel that it is really important that as a business and individuals we give back to those who might not be finding the festive period quite so celebratory. Barnabus does a brilliant job all year round so we want to urge as many people as possible to help them get the food and funds they need to keep doing it.”

The festive offering will take place on Friday 13th December from 7:30pm to 9:00pm at Barnabus, 45 Bloom St, Manchester M1 3LY.
