Next Meal Day 2021

Each year we celebrate Next Meal Saturday to raise awareness of the plight of street homelessness and how can make a difference by directing people to the nearest place for food and support

Last year we marked the day in Exeter – where the city’s cathedral was lit up with Next Meal’s logo and message.

This year, in the midst of a global pandemic, we are taking Next Meal Saturday online, with a special event on zoom replacing the usual events across the country.

So much has changed over the last 12 months, but the work we all do to help the homeless, hungry and vulnerable continues. We want to take a moment to share some of the amazing initiatives that our friends across the world have put in place to overcome the unique challenges of Covid.

We’d love you to join us on Thursday, January 28 as we link up centres in the UK with New York, Sydney, Los Angeles, Paris and more to share our experiences of the last year.

If you’d like to take part, or just listen in, please email Martin Stone at and we’ll send you details.

Here are just some of the wonderful examples we’ve heard about in recent months:
