Food For Families
The Beverley Cherry Tree Community Centre has developed relationships with local supermarkets enabling free food to be given to families attending the centre.
East Yorkshire Foodbank
Today in East Yorkshire there are families struggling to put food on the table. For people on low incomes. a sudden crisis (redundancy, benefit delay or an unexpected bill) can mean going hungry. Every day parents skip meals to feed their children and people are forced to choose between paying the rent and eating. East Yorkshire Foodbank provides emergency food and support to local people in crisis. The Beverley Cherry Tree Community Centre can offer food vouchers on a Tuesday and Thursday between 9am and 4pm for the East Yorkshire Foodbank.
To be eligible for a food voucher you must be in crisis.
Evidence will be required:
Proof of ID
Proof of income
If you have children you must provide child benefit proof
Through the Community Food Connection, Tesco work with FareShare to donate surplus food from their stores. Tesco stores inform local charities of any surplus food and the charity picks it up free of charge and turns it into meals for those in need.
What we need: Food donations that we can then donate to families to promote healthy living & lifestyles. What we’ll do: We will deliver food to the community via our advice centre, staff & families. We are also hoping to raise £10000 from donations to purchase & run a van that will deliver food to families & pensioners who live in rural areas.
We are also supported by Aldi, Lidl and local businesses who help with food donations.
