Deliveroo offers free meals to unhoused LGBTQ+ people

Words by Abi Scaife

Restaurants signed up to Deliveroo are offering free meals to unhoused LGBTQ+ people this Pride Month.

Amazing. Tell me more.

LGBTQ+ people experiencing homelessness will be able to collect free meals at 11 different restaurants across the UK in a new scheme piloted by Deliveroo.

Deliveroo has joined forces with Akt, an LGBTQ+ youth homelessness charity, to fund the scheme in recognition of Pride Month. The restaurants taking part are based across London, Brighton, Bristol and Norwich.

How does it work?

When ordering at the till, a person in need can claim one of the free meals made available by the scheme by saying “I am a friend of Dorothy” or by mentioning “Dorothy”.

The scheme will run for three months, or until all the meals have been claimed.
