The free food distribution point in Crewkerne town centre on Thursday mornings, is continuing to serve the local community during the current lockdown. Open tomorrow at Bar 5 in Market Street from 10 am until approximately 11.45 am (while food stocks last), this week’s offerings include bread, mushrooms, lemons. limes and some dried and tinned produce which has been kindly donated by Yeovil Day Centre.
Crewkerne Community Kitchen, which is run by volunteers, was set up in July last year by Michael and Kate Fox, in association with Fare Share Go. Surplus food is collected from Tescos in Chard and Ilminster on a Wednesday evening and from Waitrose and The Veg Shed in Crewkerne on Thursday mornings. Michael Fox, who has checked the current restrictions on community services during the lockdown, said: “The good news is that volunteers are allowed to continue providing essential services to the community. It is important that food is used, rather than thrown away. Come and get some free food on Thursday mornings in Bar 5 and help reduce Britain’s food waste mountain.”
