Packing and delivery teams expanding to meet increased demand

Food for just under 4,000 meals was provided by the Food Hub to 443 clients and family members during October, the most in a single month since January.

October’s 3,987 meals took to more than 10,000 the total delivered in the last three months, and past 31,500 meals overall so far this year – with the busy months of November and December still to come.

In the last few weeks several of our twice-weekly packing and delivery sessions have been busier than last Christmas, which historically was our busiest period ever.

As the sessions on Saturday and Wednesday mornings have got busier we have begun recruiting an extra packer for each session, with four packers working in two teams of two.

We will also be having an extra afternoon session on our last operating day before Christmas on 21st December.

We continue to be VERY GRATEFUL INDEED for each and every donation we receive from our donors and supporters, and for the unfailing generosity of our supporters, especially in these difficult times.
