We are delighted to be able to announce that Next Meal is now a registered charity.
It is extraordinary what Next Meal has been able to achieve over the past years: no formal structure, less money, but a wonderful facility in the website, massive momentum and enormous goodwill. All this and more has been created by everyone contributing to build something with the potential to achieve real change.
It’s wonderful that the Charity Commission, having looked really carefully at everything that Next Meal does and everything we plan to do, has decided that Next Meal really is working for the public benefit, helping some of the most vulnerable in our society.
Martin already has a great team behind Next Meal. He has gathered a board of enthusiastic trustees to lead Next Meal now that it’s a charity. Our determination is that from the amazing beginnings, Next Meal might become an ever-growing force for kindness and change.

Chair of the trustees.
