After months of planning and collaborating, Harrow Youth Parliament and Go Dharmic have collaborated to set up a food distribution in Harrow to help the community during the cost of living crisis.
Harrow Youth Parliament falls under the Harrow Council and is a part of the national UK Youth Parliament. The goal of the organisation is to represent the voice and concerns of the youth not only on a regional level, but on a national level too.
The youth parliament noticed that one key concern of the youth was determining where to get their next meal. In an attempt to provide some relief, they collaborated with a charity called Go Dharmic and are working together to try and combat this problem.
“When Kashmea approached me for setting up a food distribution for vulnerable families and the homeless in Harrow I was delighted that it was being led by Harrow Youth Parliament. It is young people who are leading the social and environmental movements of our day and this group of determined young people really give me hope for a better future.” – Hanuman Dass, Founder & Chairman, Go Dharmic
Every Wednesday Harrow Youth Parliament and Go Dharmic can be found at 22-10 St Anns Rd, Harrow HA1 1LF from 5.30pm – 6.30pm. The distribution serves all vegetarian food including a hot meal, snacks, ready-to-eat meals and more, and is open to everyone.
Harrow Youth Parliament has not only been instigating change in the borough, but has raised awareness about how the cost of living crisis affects the youth at the House of Commons. Harrow’s Youth MP, Kashmea Wahi was elected to open a debate at the despatch box in November and was one of the only non-MPs to get this opportunity.
