Gift Meal Ticket Scheme in Newcastle-under-Lyme

A new scheme has been launched in Newcastle to help those in need of a meal. The scheme is the Gift Meal Ticket Scheme.

Simply, it is a voucher (ticket) for a meal that people can purchase from a participating cafe in Newcastle and then give to someone in need e.g. to a rough sleeper, donate to Food Bank for their clients or give to an elderly neighbour who needs a reason to leave the house and alleviate loneliness. The recipient can then redeem the ticket for a meal in the specified cafe.

This provides a way that anyone who would like to help someone can do so simply without giving money. For the recipient the meal is easily redeemed by handing over the ticket and receiving a hot meal inside with some warmth and comfort.

There are 7 cafes in Newcastle who are now involved. See the separate list for locations in Newcastle. At each cafe a specific hot meal will be served at the normal meal price, which again simplifies things as there is no need to sort out what you are going to buy or for the recipient to have to sort out what they will have. The cost is between £3.80 and £5.50.

The idea of purchasing at the normal price, rather than negotiating a discounted rate will prevent people buying them and using them themselves. Cafes can, however, add to the meal if they so wish.

The Newcastle BID (Business Improvement District) are supporting the scheme and discussions are being held with the Council too about promoting it on their website.

Details of the Scheme are on the leaflets with this article.

Thank you for your help in supporting those in need.
