Last December, as in previous years, we and our partners in the Cambridge Food Poverty Alliance worked to provide much-needed support to local families.
We sent a food parcel to each family, including fresh food to help them provide a good meal at Christmas. It also included a range of traditional goods like puddings, biscuits and treats, and a gift.
Some of the packages were distributed at food hubs and events held by local groups and organisations. Others were delivered direct to families.
We asked Cambridge residents to help by donating food, games or gifts, or by helping to pack and deliver the parcels. Thank you very much to everybody who helped in any way.
We plan to run the scheme again in 2022 – watch this space later in the year for more information.
