Bridgend Farmhouse response to the COVID-19 crisis:
Our food resilience response project:
In collaboration with local partners, we have developed a food resilience response to the COVID-19 crisis. We have recruited a kitchen team of volunteer chefs and a packaging and distribution team of catering managers, many of whom have recently lost their jobs, and all are devoted to helping local vulnerable people.
They work in collaboration with an off-site team of volunteer logistics coordinators and a trained volunteer delivery team (complete with personal protection equipment such as disposable masks and gloves).
We are offering meal delivery to people in EH16 and EH17 in need. Each delivery contains a breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner, in recyclable packaging, that recipients can reheat with just a kettle and either a microwave or a hob. These are distributed principally through intermediaries such as local community, religious, educational and health-sector organisations and other pivotal members of our local community.
If you know of anyone who needs to access this service, please ask them to call 07873 976801. If we cannot accommodate them, we will refer them elsewhere. We are accepting referrals only from local community, religious, educational and health-sector organisations and we are seeking partners who can deliver to their own service users and our local communities in EH16 and EH17.
