Coronavirus Crisis Response

United African Association (UAA) delivered food to over 2000 people as at May 2021 thanks to grants from Northamptonshire Community Foundation, Northampton Borough Council, DEFRA, Northampton Hope Centre, Shop Zero (Bags of Food), Co-op, Restore Northampton. We have also received funding from the National Lottery for the purchase of non food essentials.

Northampton Partnership Homes kindly let us use Leicester Street Community Room on Saturday mornings to bag the food for delivery to homes in Northampton & Wellingborough. Amongst our volunteers are members of Northamptonshire healthcare NHS Foundation trust, UAA members, Dancing Drums and some food recipients have come forward to offer their help.

A few of our volunteers are also phoning people in isolation in Northampton who have been referred to us by Northampton Borough Council. Many thanks to Leticia, Lyndsay, Peter, Selina, Lynette, Mavis, Ferries, Margo, Florence for their assistance.

We are thankful to the generous donations of food from ShopZero in St James, Northampton since March that have been donated to over 300 people – supplies of perishable and non perishable food items have been delivered to various families and individuals in Northampton and Wellingborough. For more updates on our weekly deliveries to households in the county please visit our Facebook page.
