The past couple of weeks getting things in place to start our Family Food Box deliveries have been fantastic. It all started with a phone call from a friend at Millfield School where they have been running a similar scheme in the surrounding area for a few weeks. Jools and I loved the idea and after sounding out a few local people and schools about the likely need, we jumped in feet first.
We’ve had fantastic support from Millfield School who have given us loads of practical support and help. And from the team at Chartwells who have helped us get a supply chain in place enabling us to get food ordered, delivered and repackaged into the right sized boxes for each family.
We’ve also had lots of support and encouragement from three of our local schools (Duchy PreSchool, Duchy School and Cullompton Community College) and Bradninch Together, a local mutual aid group set up by the good people of Bradninch to help out other Bradninch folk during the lock down.
