Pupils at a Harlesden secondary school are benefitting from an Alperton charity providing 2,500 meals a day to families in the capital.
Danny Coyle, headteacher at Newman Catholic College (NCC), says he’s “blown away” by the work of the Community Response Kitchen (CRK).
Daksha Versani and Paresh Jethwa, who run the charity in Mount Pleasant, have been delivering 60 meals a day to the Harlesden Road school.
The couple have set up a fundraising page to provide 200,000 meals in 100 days to Londoners.
Danny said:“ We are delighted that the CRK is making such a positive difference to the wellbeing of our students.

“I know that we would have struggled to keep our school open without their direct support.
