There has been a local food bank for some years now and that’s business as usual. However, a community hub has also been set up which takes unsold fresh food from local shops and turns it into ready-made meals which are given away FOC.
Our smallish town has opened one in a restaurant which cannot open normally . They are really doing well collecting food to give out . I had a tidy of my large freezer and gave them the vegetarian food my family will not be here to eat plus other goodies . I worry a bit because they do not seem to be vetting the people asking for the food but , being a small town , someone will know them . I think it is worth the risk if anyone reallyneeding the food gets it . It is sad times we live in indeed when this is needed .
