We can help! With funding, advice, equipment & ingredients!
Smart Communities could give you the tools to set up a food bank, collection services, or funds to buy Fridges, Freezers, and other equipment to help you store food safely, and help stock them for the people in your local area.
The Somerset Food Resilience Taskforce, CCS and Somerset County Council have been working together to increase food security for residents in Somerset. CCS Village Agents and volunteers have delivered nearly 1,000 meals to families in need to help prevent holiday hunger, and have also recently delivered nearly a tonne of donated potatoes to people in need, distributed through 10 community groups.
I feel for people who are struggling right now. I’m a professional person and I’ve retired now but in the early 90’s I found myself in a similar position through no fault of my own when the business I worked for collapsed suddenly after a government problem. As a single parentI found myself going to bed hungry and it’s no fun.Somerset Volunteer said:
