El Paso’s Pay it forward – help pay for a meal for the homeless

Political uncertainties got you down? Why not ‘do a good thing’ and donate towards hot meals for homeless people.

The lovely people at El Paso’s Grill on City Road are running a scheme where you can add £3 on to the price of your food to help fund meals for homeless people: El Paso’s Pay It Forwards.

The number of people sleeping rough in Cardiff has more than doubled in the past few years. Cardiff charity The Wallich reported there were 31 people sleeping rough this April, compared to 12 people per month in 2013.

El Paso’s are currently providing 10-15 meals a night to the homeless. They say there has been a huge response to their project, and all those that have benefited have been very thankful.

They are now reaching out to the wider public to help support them in ensuring everyone has at least one hot meal a day.

Please consider donating to their GoFundMe page, and sharing their campaign on your newsfeeds, and emailing your friends, families and colleagues.

  1. Thanks for sharing this article. El Paso’s looks like a great campaign to be involved with. Its quite disturbing how much homelessness has increased around the world. We have come so far in society, however poverty seems to be an ongoing issue which is only getting worst it seems.

    We at The Meal Project are on a similar path to El Paso’s, we are advocating for food relief and food security for homeless people. We are trying to combine the food waste problem to help solve poverty and along the way help reduce food waste. Check out our blogs below and feel free to comment your thoughts on the issues 🙂
