So often, on the front lines of disaster, we hear from beneficiaries how important the ShelterBox cooking equipment is to restoring a sense of normalcy to their lives. The comfort of a hot meal can cut through the chaos and connect families in difficult times.

This inspired us to create Cooking Through Corona, a Facebook community to unite people from around the world. With so many of our volunteers and supporters now homebound and working remotely, we want to stay connected and bring comfort during these uncertain times.

We will be sharing ShelterBox deployment updates, providing recipes and most importantly, coming together. Watch this link to learn more.

The Last Tent

SUGGESTED AGES: 12-16

Encourage debate and empathy by leading a participant or group towards making a very difficult decision. It’s a mock-up of the type of situation a ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) volunteer could find themselves in – having to weigh up emotive issues and make a judgement in the field.

Need more of a challenge?


ShelterBox Off the Grid challenges people to go 12 hours without using any type of electronic device!

When disasters strike and power lines go down, families are left without comfort, light and electricity. We challenge young supporters to think about what this would be like and then experience it for themselves!

Share your experiences with us and others after you complete it on social media!

Let others know about the challenge you’re taking on before you start and have them join you!

Have your supporters pledge to see you make it through your stretch of being off the grid by setting up a fundraising page.

The rules are simple. No electricity and nothing with an ‘on’ button. How far you take the challenge is up to you, the bigger the challenge the more people sponsor you, the more you will be helping people in crisis – who have no shelter, no home and no access to any power.
