Good Food Matters are closed currently for regular activities due to the COVID 19 situation. What we ARE doing in response is starting a Good Food meal distribution service - initially this will be supporting the New Addington and Fieldway area, local food bank and the FOOD STOP.
We are looking to scale this up quite quickly depending on demand and support and resources.
We will be providing cooked meals in partnership with local organisations and CVA. We deliver food to the community partners such as a foodbank, The Family Centre which is then distributed borough wide as well as locally.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, the elderly, isolated and people with compromised immune systems are worried about going to the shops to buy food. Many people are watching their livelihoods collapse. A lot of people are struggling already. People may go hungry.
Good Food really Matters and we want to help those in need and we need your help!
Linking in with community organisations we want to
Cook lots of home-cooked nutritious "ready meals" including culturally appropriate meals
Make available some healthy meals full of fresh veg to keep vulnerable people as well as can be
deliver them to those in most need/ isolation
Keep a friendly line of support open for anyone in crisis to signpost to additional support
Grow window sill crops such as cut and come again lettuce, basil, coriander, parsley and microgreens for distribution across the community.
Please get in contact with Amanda from Good Food Matters in order to learn more about this service as it develops. Email email@example.com or call 07715905033
This activity is specifically on Simply Connect Croydon as part of the community response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation.
