Liverpool’s craft beer and hotdog joint Craft Taproom will be working alongside Signature Living to provide free food for the people staying at the Hatton Garden Temporary Homeless Shelter, donating a meal for every one they sell at their Smithdown Road bar until the end of January.
Craft Taproom will be donating the profits from their food sales towards the shelter and will be regularly dropping off hot food at least once a week – as well as cakes and mince pies from local bakers Cakehole. The bar has also pledged to donate any residual funds to the shelter after everyone has been fed.
With over 80 people a night sleeping at the shelter, campaigners have highlighted how vital it is that everyone stays warm and well fed at such a cold and potentially dangerous time of year.
Bar owner Andy Scott said “It’s an amazing thing that Signature Living are doing, and we are delighted to be involved. It is just not right that there are so many people on the streets of Liverpool at this time of year. If between us we can take away even a small amount of stress and worry about where to sleep and eat at night, then of course it has to be done. Hopefully we can help make a bit of a difference to a lot of people this winter.”
Craft Taproom can be found at 174 Smithdown Road, Liverpool with Hotdogs starting at £3.50, and both meaty and vegan options are available. To find out more about the work Craft and Signature Living are doing, keep up to date at www.facebook.com/
