Project Engage Covid-19 Emergency Food Response.
During the lockdown the Community Centre closed to the public under the restrictions. We became the venue for Emergency Food distribution to support those who were self-isolating, shielding, infirm, in temporary housing, those experiencing a loss of household income and those who had no access to a foodbank. Between April and August together with our partners, we delivered 5,277 food parcels and supported 972 people including 341 children in 363 households.
Plans for the future
Create a long-term emergency provision for those most impacted by the pandemic so no child goes hungry.
