York’s Labour MP has praised the work done to help support and feed homeless people in the city.
Over the weekend, Rachael Maskell, visited the HOPING Street Kitchen and heard about the challenges they face and the help they get from HOPING
She said the dedication of the volunteers was incredible.
As well as providing people with good nutritious food, the homeless community also receives conversation and support. The volunteers show them that somebody does care and wants to help.
The MP helped to serve Irish Stew, Chicken Curry, Spaghetti with Meatballs and Cauliflower Cheese.
That was followed by Apple Crumble and Custard, Lime and Lemon Cheesecake, Chocolate Tray Bakes & Chocolate Sponge Roll.
Ms Maskell said food, fuel and housing poverty issues must be the priority for decision makers in London.
Jayne Venables, who is one of the volunteers for HOPNG, said it was a comfort to know that the problems faced by the most vulnerable members of society can be heard in Westminster.
