Community Care Package

A free food delivery service for our community during the current crisis, for anyone who can't get out or afford fresh fruit and veg.

The crisis in our community

(updated 21st may)

Over the last 10 years, child poverty and food insecurity have crept into our communities.  It's an astonishing fact that we have working families who cannot feed their children without the use of food banks.  The problem has massively exacerbated by the current crisis. unemployment, isolation, homelessness and illness have all played a part

We have all been aware of the inequality and now we find our selves in a position to address the problem at a ground level.

About us

We are a group of (temporarily closed) pubs, festival folk and local community groups using their time and skills to help those at the sharp end of the crisis.

We are providing a free fresh food delivery service across our city. We buy in bulk, pack and deliver to those who need it most.

We are volunteers from the local community, The Easton Cowboys and Cowgirls. The Plough Inn Easton, The Pipe and Slippers, The Lion and the Star and Garter, Team love.

We are co-ordinating with AidBoxCommunity, Project Mama, National food Service and Base.

We need you 

We have had an amazing response. People have really generous with donations, But as the crisis continues the numbers of people in need have been rising. We are delivering around 750 boxes a week. at present donations only cover 80% of that. We have received a much-needed grant from the Quartet foundation, but expect that cushion to run out within the month. We really need your continued support to be able to reach all the people that need your help. 

Thank you so much for donating. It gives us the faith we need to carry on, it lets people know they have not been forgotten and most of all it feeds people who really need it.

£20 covers the cost of 4 boxes.
