“At the most recent public meeting arranged to enable us to explain to residents progress that has been made towards resolving some of the areas of concern expressed at previous meetings I was able to report on the huge success of the FoodCycle initiative which provides a healthy meal every Friday evening between 4 and 10pm at the Friends Meeting House in Upper Goat Lane for those who rely on these occasions to enjoy good food as well as the opportunity to meet each other and benefit from the mutual support offered there.
A dedicated group of volunteers collects food from local shops that has passed its sell-by date but not its use-by one so is safe, nutritious and healthy and would otherwise be wasted and thrown away. My City Centre SNAP Partners’ Panel believes this is providing a really useful service to those who have, for whatever reason, fallen on hard times and need some support from the community while, at the same time, preventing good and nutritious food from going to waste. That has to be good for everyone”.
