Hi Simon and team,
Just to let you know that there is a new Facebook group called kings Lynn food share.
The aim is to help folk pass on the food they don’t need to those in need.
Previously many of the posts offering free food have been answered by folk offering to take food to food bank. That’s awesome for food bank however the folk that are struggling to access it or simply need a little extra it’s not helping.
Much of the offered food has already come from government hampers and food bank and is being passed on as folk want to share what they can’t use so it ends up back at food bank.
So I started the food share group.
People are encouraged to post a picture of what’s on offer and a rough area.
They can say if they are willing to deliver.
Covid safe handover is of course important.
Here is the link….
I am hoping to get people in the group who can post advice on accessing services to help folk access food bank, NAS, etc.
There is still a lot of folks who are struggling to access or don’t think they are eligible for food help.
