Q. Are you getting help with accessing food?

Knowing that many will struggle with food at Christmas is sad, especially when at this time of year the waste food from supermarkets is pretty obscene. This Friday we picked up our largest donation for some time and that will be due to the over-ordering and fickle nature of the Christmas season. For our family this does mean that due to this work and extra effort to pick up food to share with people in our work that actually often we have a kitchen full of surplus food items that need using or processing. I'm sure this helps our own food budget more than we realise. We rarely have to buy bread products for example as that is one of the most wasted food that we collect, and bananas.
