Food & Drink Supplies
There are lots of different foods which can be supplied. During our outreach events, we like to serve hearty stews and soups because hot meals are so much more satisfying to those who live on the streets. The ability to serve hot meals outside in a public place obviously involves more planning and practical issues, but through good teamwork it's all doable and well worth the effort!
Sandwiches, salads and packed lunches are less demanding because they don't need to be served hot. And of course, other "longlife" foodstuffs like crisps, snack bars, flapjacks, energy bars and biscuits are the easiest - they can be simply handed out and are great because they can provide sustenance to our friends after we have packed up and gone home.
Similarly with drinks; serving hot drinks like tea, coffee, Horlicks and drinking chocolate is best, and then supplies of cold drinks and juices can be taken away by our friends.
