FOODThe Food NetworkThe food network is changing from next week. We are going to be running an emergency food parcel service.
 Our criteria is going to be 
1. Physical/mental health causing problems leaving the house
2. No recourse to public funds
3. Monies sanctioned
4. Families struggling to access outside food agencies who have little or no funds.
People will either be given a one off parcel or be given the support for a number of weeks until there situation changes. We hope that ever agency will make sure that the people meet the criteria. Hopefully together we can get people back on the right track.
