Rola Wala Street Found Vendor has supplied charity with 100,000 school meals

Rola Wala a permanent vendor in Trinity Kitchen has given over 100,000 school meals to charity in support of the One Feeds Two Foundation.

The one Feeds Two foundation was set up by JP Campbell a street food chef from Edinburgh.  The idea is to use hunger to end hunger.

This is done as every time a food vendor supporting the charity sells a meal they also donate one to a child living in poverty.

By donating a school meal the initiative hopes this will encourage school attendance as a child will be more likely to come to school instead of working or begging. It will improve children’s health and concentration as well as helping raise communities out of poverty.

Rola Wala is one of the first companies to support the charity and for every Naan roll or bowl it sells at The Trinity Kitchen it donates a meal to the charity.

The outlet having been in Trinity Kitchen for 11 months has managed to hit a milestone in the amount of meals they’ve given away.

This is not the first time Rola Wala have been involved in working with charity. Earlier this year they and the rest of the Trinity Kitchen providers heloed try and battle and eliminate food waste.

They worked with local charity Real Junk Food Project and operated a pay as you feel basis helping raise £23,000 for the charity.

As part of this success owner Mark Wright is celebrating by thanking the customers of Leeds for their support and will be giving away 500 bowls or rolls completely free of charge. This event will occur in the 8th September from 11Am – 3PM.

Mark Wright commented

“We are one of the first businesses to support the burgeoning One Feeds Two charity, and we’re really proud because they provide tangible help directly to those who need it most.

It’s great to see that in our relatively short time here at Trinity Leeds, we have already donated tens of thousands of school meals!

Everyone is welcome to come down on the 8th of September for some great food, good fun, and most importantly, to provide yet more meals for those less fortunate than ourselves.”
