Additional Information

DONATION FOR FOOD CHARITY HELPING ALFRETON

Alfreton Town Council have supported the Fareshare Midlands Charity with a donation of £1000.00 to support them during the Coronavirus crisis. 

Fareshare Midlands support in excess of 1000 families in Alfreton, Which represents just under 3% of their support in East Midlands.  Although that figure may be much higher given the unprecedented times that we find ourselves in. 

FareShare Midlands provides a very low-cost food solution to frontline charities and community groups helping them make essential savings on their food budgets, by redistributing good quality in date surplus food from the food industry. Good food becomes surplus for a number of reasons including overproduction or a short shelf life. We work with retailers, suppliers and manufacturers to access surplus food including fresh fruit and vegetables, meats, dairy products, tinned and dried goods.

Their food reaches vulnerable men, women and children of all ages and backgrounds who have fallen on difficult times and includes: homeless people, children living below the poverty line, refugees and low income families. The types of groups they support include hostels, schools, food banks, and community centres.

 

Their work is about more than just meals – without their service one in five of the charities and community groups supported,  would potentially have to close. Receiving FareShare Midlands food provides average savings of £7,900 which helps charities to continue providing vital support to thousands of vulnerable people.

Community groups, schools and charities can become a member of FareShare Midlands by completing an application form and by having a kitchen inspection by one of their staff. We then work with them to supply the types of food they need. Individual members of the public can access our food via these frontline organisations. They can be contacted by email enquiries@fareshare-eastmidlands.org.uk

We want to hear what matters to you.

We’ve got a survey of five simple questions about the area where you live, so you can tell us what issues you feel we should be tackling.

The consultation utilises our popular Derbyshire Alert system, giving people the chance to take part online and sign up to receive information from the police electronically in future.

Chief Inspector Becky Webster said: “Derbyshire Talking is going to give residents the chance to tell us what matters most to them in their local community. It could be that anti-social behaviour is worrying you, or perhaps you have information to pass on about drug dealing.

“We want your feedback and we will use it not only to shape our priorities in each neighbourhood but we will contact you with updates as to what action we have taken.”
