We are cutting down on our plastic!
Even though our bags are bio-degradable we are looking to cut our plastic use by as much as 90%. From now on parcels will be packed in either cardboard boxes or bags for life. Clients will be asked to return the boxes/bags every week and exchange them for new ones. That way we can continually recycle the bags/boxes.
We have been working with the High School over the last few months by giving presentations on food poverty to Year 8 and AS students. We hope to develop this relationship further by giving more presentations this coming winter. We are also hoping to have the students prepare meals for distribution to our clients. We will keep you updated on our progress.
Our move to new premises has been postponed due to the recent lockdowns. We are not sure when we will be moving but will keep this site updated as we find out more.
Demand remains high and we are currently supporting over 40 households. Although we still do not need cash (see donations), we are very much in need of food. Please see this website for details of what is needed.
Thank you again for your support and generosity.
