This Wednesday's food parcel packing list was our biggest yet. We packed 43 parcels of food and other essentials (6 more than last week) and delivered 29. Those parcels will support 53 adults and several children and babies. The parcel numbers are rising every week, which is a concerning measure of how many people are struggling in this lockdown.

This week was all about distributing an absolute mountain of tofu, alongside plentiful fruit and vegetables, and lots of fresh noodles. Perfect for January healthy eating - tofu stirfry anyone?! Perhaps a few of the shops over-ordered tofu for Veganuary?

Much as we like a good group natter we're delivering in pairs (sticking in households/bubbles where possible) and staggering arrival times at the foodbank while the coronavirus numbers are rising so steeply. The last thing we want to do is put anyone at risk, so these seem like sensible precautions.

Welcome to Anna - thanks for joining us!

Other causes for celebration:

  • Mark did his 50th Good Deed last week
  • Jocasta did her 10th Good Deed last Wednesday
  • Samantha AND Laura both did their 10th Good Deed tonight
  • Morgan's red GoodGym membership Tshirt got it's first outing

Well done all of you!
