Thomas Franks Portugal joined the fight against food poverty in June when St. Julian’s Lisbon approved the opening of their kitchens and facilities for the preparation and delivery of food parcels to those in the community who are most in need. We started with delivering 100 fresh free meals to the homeless in the communities surrounding St. Julian’s with headmistress Dr. Nicola Mason joining the team to deliver the meals.

With the very generous funding we have been able to continue delivering 100 fresh meals a day to the most vulnerable members at the Centro Comunitário de Carcavelos & the homeless community.

July 24th marked the end of Feeding Communities Portugal – we delivered around 2200 meals over 22 days to the most vulnerable people in the community, including the homeless.

When asked about St. Julians’ involvement in Feeding Communities, Dr. Nicola Mason said, “We are proud to have been working with Thomas Franks Portugal and local charities to help to eradicate food poverty in our local area – equally committed and humbled to be involved in the Beyond Education Being Human project ensuring a real legacy of Feeding Communities and encouraging a culture of lifelong social responsibility with the young people in our care.”
