As we were faced with the lockdown challenges, as a team effort we have set up a network of #CommunityLarders in the Clay Country area. We started to serve our community by providing free meals, whilst diverting good produce away from going to waste!
In 3 months the Community Larders have had nearly 1,000 visits. With the help of a group of volunteers, we distributed the equivalent of nearly 10,000 meals. This way over 5.5 tonnes of food were saved from going to waste! That’s the same as 6 1/2 cows!!!
Thanks to the brilliant The Hive Food project, we were able to distribute frozen meals cooked with care to many families in our community.
Our partners at Fare Share South West have recently been awarded a prize for their starling work of food distribution!
