Fundamental Foods Covid-19 Food Hub

Food poverty is a scarily prevalent issue in the country and even more so now with the current pandemic. Since coronavirus started to sweep the UK, we have taken the role of supporting our community through our food provision services.

Our small team of staff members, and community volunteers we have risked our lives to provide essential food aid for those most in need in the community. From those that have experienced a dramatic drop in income to the elderly who cannot leave their house - we have helped everyone we could. 

We have provided a community food hub in both Prestonpans and Tranent which reaches to those in the surrounding areas. This food hub is for all individuals to collect essential packages of food, toiletries and household products, and is also a base for which our delivery service runs. Deliveries are provided to those shielding, isolating or unable to reach the pantry.

In the first 10 weeks of the coronavirus lockdown our food hubs provided over 15,000 food packages made of hot cooked meals, fruit and vegetables, food essentials such as tins, bread and milk as well as pet food, toiletries and household goods. Our food is adequately nourishing and made on site by trained chefs and nutritionists. 

This service is essential and we need continued support to provide ingredients, resources and pay for mileage. 

Here's some of the feedback we've already received:

"Many thanks for all the work. *elderly lady* was delighted and wanted to pass on that it “made her day” and “it was like someone giving her a hug""

"I really just want to say thank you so much I don't know what I would have done without your help you've really made a difference for me and my family in this crazy time"
