Food4All – Let’s pay it forward
Nirmal Singh Saggu and Anju Ahluwalia started food 4 all in mid-2016 from the Namdhari Gurdwara on Upton lane in Forest Gate, East London.
The idea was to help those less fortunate than ourselves and provide the homeless and low-income individuals and families with at least a hot meal twice a week.
When Covid broke it was just a natural progression to continue feeding these amazing souls in and around Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets, Hackney and other parts of East London and Essex. Nirmal & Anju did this Seva while they were still doing their day jobs with the help of volunteers. Providing around 700 meals a week grew to at least up to 4000 meals a week 4 days s a week and now as Covid measures have been relaxed around 1200 meals are cooked 2 times a week.
Food4All are ready for, if a peak does come again to support as many people as they can as they know how important these meals are for the individuals that needed it.
Food4All provide these meals as they are needed not just because of the Covid but also pre covid they were and still will be needed
As part of our fundraising, we are selling our branded face masks to raise money to give back to the community. We are currently taking pre-orders for anyone who would like to buy and donate to Food4AllUK.

The team at Food4All have had a difficult 6 weeks, it has being amazing how people have stepped up and helped us during this time when we have dealt with the difficult situation of not knowing if our brother was going to come home.
With the personal heart break we were going through as a family, it was important for us to continue with the support that we have given to the needy in terms of providing a hot vegetarian meal.
We are so happy that Jit came home over the bank holiday weekend from hospital and is building on his journey of rehabilitation over the next year.
We have had Food4All face masks made for the charity in the name of Jit so that we can raise money for the charity, as Food4All is close to Jit heart and every Saturday evening would join Food4All local feed to the homeless in East London.
Please help us to motivate Jit with his rehabilitation and him knowing that Food4All is still doing the amazing work it has. Please donate £15 and a face mask will be delivered to you.
