Working in partnership with social enterprise Fritto Italian Street Food, an organisation that teaches food preparation to Shaw Street customers, portions of pasta with meatballs and homemade scones were prepared and hand-delivered to homeless people at The Salvation Army Ann Fowler House in Liverpool for this year’s annual Be Lovely Day.

Riverside Care and Support specialist support worker Alison Carson said: “It was great to hear that people at Shaw Street wanted to help the homeless community for Be Lovely Day. Community engagement is key to rehabilitation for our customers.”

Fritto director Luca Sanvittore said: “Be Lovely Day is about doing something for others, to be the change in the world you wish to see through random acts of kindness. With Fritto I am lucky enough to be able to share my cooking skills with the people of Shaw Street, and I’m thrilled that together we were able to feed some of our more vulnerable neighbours.”

Shaw Street provides support and accommodation for people with experiences of homelessness.
