Food group are a not-for profit project and aims to reduce food waste, alleviate food poverty and assist with household budgeting.
Access to the group is not means tested and they don’t ask for complicated referrals. They suggest a voluntary donation of £5 is made on collection of the food which contributes to running costs.
The group is open every Wednesday from 9.30 am in the warehouse section of the Heartwood Centre, Accrington & Rossendale College on Sandy Lane (BB5 2AR). Please check ahead if if during the college holidays.
Alongside the Food Group the College are holding a Community Cafe on Wednesday mornings in Roots Restaurant (also part of the Heartwood Centre) serving free coffee/tea and cake to their community neighbours and students accessing the group between 9.30 am and 10.30am.
The group are always looking for volunteers to help out so if you have some time to spare on Wednesday mornings please get in touch.
