We have been busy over the summer picking, sorting and delivering food to and from a growing number of places. We are currently picking up from 10 stores and sending food to 7 schools, 2 nurseries, 6 churches as well as the Link Community Centre in Tadley and Basingstoke Foodbank 3 times a week.
We are hugely grateful that CFL were awarded a great of £1000 by Basingstoke Voluntary Action (www.bvaction.org.uk) to fund food support for pupil premium families over the holidays. We have also recently received news of a £400 grant from neighbourly which will be used for day-to-day running costs. A huge thank you to all who were involved.

The following video from the Felix Project in London which is similar to Community Food Link provides an insight into the activities of the project.
The Community Food Link project is run by a group of volunteers based at London Street URC Church Basingstoke and is part of Starfish Enterprise Trust Ltd.
