A group of people from Slade Green had already put together a food bank prior to COVID-19. But over the last few weeks, they have stepped up the whole process and have been delivering food parcels to households in their area. Last week they helped 854 individuals.
They also designed and delivered around 100 activity packs and recipe packs to children so they can make items at home.
'Working as a group of volunteers we all work well together. Te communication and the fact that we are helping each other works well.'
Whilst they are receiving donations, it is a challenge to ensure they have enough food to meet demand.
