Food is still really short in camp and more and more people are arriving. Lots of the restaurants haven't reopened after the police action last week, so even refugees with money are struggling to get enough to eat. The medical caravans have seen some people eating tissues to stave off hunger pangs.
So what can we do?
Calais Kitchen's ingredient parcels are needed now more than ever. They are low on supplies and funds to buy supplies; and need volunteers.
Refugee community kitchen are based offsite and so will be able to continue whatever happens with police actions/demolitions. They need more food, and more volunteers.
The onsite kitchens are Belgium, Kitchen in Calais and little Ashram. All need financial donations, little Ashram is looking for long term volunteers too.
It is substantially more difficult to get people enough food in these conditions. Please donate, share, fundraise- no one should go hungry.
