Crewkerne’s free food distribution point in the town centre is now open on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10 am until approximately 11.30 am, or until food stocks have been depleted, which is often earlier. Crewkerne Community Kitchen which was set up last July by Michael and Kate Fox, to prevent good food going to waste and help reduce Britain’s food waste mountain, is run by volunteers at Bar 5 in Market Street.
Having successfully launched their additional weekly morning session, last week, the community organisation would love to welcome more volunteers on board. Michael Fox said: “We always welcome new volunteers but now would be an especially good time to help out since we are doubling our workload. We have guidelines to help you pick up what to do, although it is pretty straightforward. If you would like to help us distribute surplus supermarket food to people who’d like to eat it, please get in contact with us.”
Crewkerne Community Kitchen which runs in association with Fare Share Go is now the designated organisation picking up from Waitrose, Tesco and more recently Lidl for Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Surplus food is also often donated by Yeovil Day Centre. Anyone who is interested in volunteering can message Crewkerne Community Kitchen through their Facebook page or send an email to Michael at firstname.lastname@example.org.
