The Club's meeting this week (16th June), held via Zoom, heard about the work which Cupboard Love, one of the town's two food banks has been able to carry out. Revd. Pete Stone explained how the collection and distribution process is working to respond to the Covid 19 Pandemic and the support to over 60 families that is being provided every week. The Club has been able to provide financial support which enabled the hours of the Administrator to be extended as well as purchasing extra goods to cover any particular shortfalls in the goods donated each week.
Having heard about the work of the Cupboard Love food bank one of our Rotarians joined the team of delivery drivers and took boxes to three families and one single person. The boxes contain an assortment of dried and tinned goods, eggs and bakery items. Additionally there is an assortment of fresh veg and fruit. All deliveries were received with thanks.
