SOS Food Distribution - 13th March 2017
*

Pete Loughans, Food Distribution Manager for SOS NI with Rotary President Colin McCarthy


Pete Loughans gave an insight into the work of SOS N Ireland which has expanded into food distribution. He explained how the organisation works with a number of Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury & Tesco stores to collect surplus fresh food late each evening and deliver it early each morning to around fifty organisations in the Belfast area which provide soup lunches or food parcels for those in need. He paid tribute to the volunteer drivers & helpers who make this huge logistical operation work for the benefit of those in need.

He also spoke about SOS transport support to & from Belfast Metropolitan College for Syrian refugees and asylum seekers to allow them to attend English classes.
