Emergency Response Programme
See attached - the Emergency Response Programme January 2021 Newsletter to highlight the Food Pallet Scheme.
As detailed in the Newsletter, The Food Pallet Scheme opened on the 25th January and will end on 31 March 2021. The scheme has bulk purchased £1m of food and essential items to bolster and increase capacity of community food providers. On the ground this will mean that the participating food providers will have increased capacity to respond to those with an identified need as a result of Covid or Brexit.
The scheme is not a return to the food parcel scheme and is accessed through existing referral channels. This scheme enables a more tailored response to the needs of an individual or family and will provide not only access to ambient food but includes, fresh meat and vegetables, personal hygiene products, sanitary products and household cleaning items such as detergents and bleach.
I would be grateful if you could forward this message to any relevant staff or stakeholders who refer those in need of support to community food providers.
