Summer Food Club
Family Action will be launching a new Food Club from the beginning of August from our Woodfield Park Centre (formerly the Charteris Centre) in Normanton Road, PE1 4XE.
This is a scheme where any family can register to collect weekly food shopping, donated through FareShare, to help make their money stretch a little further. Each time a family uses the club they pay £3.50 and will receive food worth at least £10, and usually more. In addition we will have some food available to purchase from our “shop” at much reduced prices. Food on offer will vary each week but includes chilled, frozen and store cupboard items. The money collected is used to pay delivery costs and for us to maintain the service.
Currently there is no eligibility criteria, as we recognise many different types of family struggle to cover all their bills. It is important for us to start registering families now to support with planning. I have attached some information and an application form that can be returned to us at the centre or emailed to me.
Would you help us to support local families by sharing this information as widely as possible please?
