Next Meal Saturday

Saturday 29th January 2022 – across the UK

Feeding street homeless in Manchester (Manchester Evening News)

Each year we celebrate Next Meal Saturday, an opportunity to raise awareness of the plight of street homelessness. Over the years we’ve sent thousands of Next Meal leaflets and cards to participating centres and public locations, and we’ve visited cities and towns across the UK to distribute Next Meal cards to those in need.

In 2020, we lit up Exeter Cathedral with a giant Next Meal display.

Since then, many aspects of street homelessness have changed but the need for Next Meal continues, with the website at the centre of our response.

With around 300 centres on our database, we offer a unique service for those looking for their next meal, for a friendly face or support to help them deal with the new challenges of homelessness or sustaining tenancy.

The Next Meal team will be in central London on Saturday, and we know that centres up and down the UK will be doing their bit to help spread the word – and, of course, Next Meal cards.

Next Meal Saturday has always been an important date in the Next Meal calendar, and this year is no different. It’s an opportunity to get our message – to the street homeless and the wider public.

Every card that is handed to someone in difficulty, and every visit to our website, has the potential to save someone’s life.

Thank you to all of the centres who have agreed to help this year.

Martin Stone, Next Meal founder
