About Jedidiah..

Jedidiah was set up to provide food support to struggling families. Everyone needs help sometimes.

Jedidiah's mission is simple:

  • That no one should go hungry.

  • Reminding people of the value God places on them. 

  • Doing what we can with what we have.

  • Honouring everyone regardless of their background.

And the Lord loved the child; and He sent word ...and he named him Jedidiah (beloved of the Lord) for the sake of God.

 2 Samuel 12:24-25

At the start of the year God placed in my heart to feed. I had no idea just how much need was about to happen. Initially running a food class/soup kitchen in YMCA hostel, lockdown happend and meant that things had to be put on hold. Or so I thought..

 

At the start of Covid-19 lockdown, I felt strongly there was hunger behind some of the front doors around us.

 

The local schools provided the numbers of families they knew of who needed some help. Working with my neighbours, we provided food parcels to these 100 families, initially as a one-off.

 

Then we did it again, and again, and again with increasing numbers each week. It has become a regular thing, delivering thousands of meals and hopefully, making families feel less desperate.

 

God keeps providing.

delivered via YMCA Hostels- Established in February 2020

Weekly Cooking Classes

Participants are taught how to cook quick nutritious and delicious meals ensuring good health

Meal Planning

The classes include meal planning to stimulate the mind and boost confidence on a tight budget

Feeding

Participants at each class get to share a meal with their tutor and get a portion of food to take away for a second meal

Social wellbeing

Every participant in the class enjoys the benefits of positive social association growing their confidence and the morale boost of acquiring a skill.

Motivation

Often for homeless residents residing in hostels, depression is a real and vivid challenge. The classes gives them something to look forward to each day

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jer 29:11
