The effects of the pandemic have brought unprecedented hardship to a lot of people and the use of foodbanks throughout the county have increased hugely. However, there are many people who really don’t like asking for help, or a sudden need for money overwhelms their finances and they find they just don’t have enough food.
We have been working with another charitable organisation, Rapid Response Team, who specialise in providing immediate help in the form of food boxes which provides enough food for a family of four for three days.
With the help of several schools, we have established emergency larders at seven locations are hoping to expand this to more schools, nurseries, and health visitors.
If you know of a suitable location, please contact Jacquie Alsop on 01432 607011 or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this.
