As you may or may not know, the Community Food Club is expanding to three sites (Marks Gate, William Bellamy and Osborne Partnership) and they have also changed the eligibility criteria to ensure that they are able to reach more residents who may be in need.
The Community Food Club allows residents to pay £3.50 per visit (or £10 a month) to access roughly £20 worth of groceries each week. The Food Club also provides wraparound support over a wide range of issues. Please find the locations of new sites as well as ward information here.
Postcodes can still be checked on the website using this link: https://www.lbbd.gov.uk/community-food-clubs.
If you have know of anybody who may be interested, ask them to complete the registration form with the resident, scan and send in to the relevant inbox.
