Hello.....is anybody there?
Curious to see who's here so far.
Nick - I wonder if it would be possible to set up a community shop, maybe employing local people with hours that suited them. The shop would source food from local farms at a better price than the supermarkets pay and sell it in the local community, maybe with a connection to the food banks (I confess I've not thought through the logistics). Tied in perhaps with meal ideas and easy to follow recipes and encourage people to cook better, eat better while keeping any flow of money in the local community. I realise that storage of perishable produce would be a major factor but maybe MCC could help with that one. I hope this isn't too off the wall, thanks for taking the time to read.
Louise34 - Sounds like an interesting idea Nick!
