The East End Community Foundation's Emergency Fund has supported some incredible projects and initiatives throughout the pandemic. Made in Hackney is just one of the small charities the fund has supported:
"The funding allows us to scale our service quickly and respond to the level of need rapidly, which we would not have been able to do without it. When we launched the appeal for funds, we imagined we might be making and delivering 100 emergency COVID19 meals for 2 months but realised soon the need was far greater and would be for much longer. The funding empowered us to commit to 420 meals a day for 3 months - an incredible level of service to have reached within a few weeks of deciding to launch."
