Neighbours in Poplar (@Nip_Poplar) which has been working in Tower Hamlets for the past 50 years, would like your support in requesting that Mayor John Biggs restores the Meals on Wheels service to older and vulnerable people across the Borough.

You can sign the petition to bring back Meals on Wheels here. 

NIP has been delivering cooked meals to isolated people since the end of March and our research has shown that this service is a lifeline for people’s mental, emotional and physical health .

On Sunday 26th July we will be delivering our 5,000th meal. The need for a fresh, hot cooked meal is not a Covid-19 problem, the pandemic has merely made more people aware of the awful, soul destroying loneliness suffered by many of our elders.

A friendly face delivering a culturally sensitive meal daily, is surely not too much to ask for!
