Since March 2020 , P Daddys Pop up Kitchen has been feeding the most vulnerable members of our beloved community in Wellington Somerset.
During this pandemic what has become apparent is that food poverty, or household food insecurity, can be triggered by a crisis in finance or personal circumstances, but it may also be a long-term experience of not being able to access or have the facilities to prepare a healthy diet.
From the children, young people to the elderly in our community food poverty is a reality.
The experiences of these people are just the tip of the iceberg. Food poverty, or household food insecurity is a real issue for some people and vulnerable families in Wellington and surrounding areas in south west Somerset.
These are unprecedented times but together, we are stronger, the response so far during this pandemic coming from communities in Wellington has been phenomenal .
Many Local people are offering their support as are local businesses.
We have been able to provide families and older people in the community who unable to prepare meals without support with free homecooked healthy meals.
We have during this period worked collaboratively with other local businesses and organizations in the area these are: Somerset Food Resilience Forum in Taunton, The Community Council for Somerset, Operation Re: Act , ASDA in Wellington and other local organizations and businesses. P Daddys Pop up Kitchen have been supporting Tim Potters, by providing home cooked meals free of charge, through his network of volunteers he has been delivering these meals together with meat packs and tinned food from the Somerset Food Resilience forum to the most vulnerable families in Wellington and surrounding areas.
However sadly we have recently seen a spike in demand for more food packages as we head into the October half term and the festive season, these are real families in real need.
