A number of Greater Linconshire food businesses have offered support during the COVID-19 pandemic.

At the start of lockdown UK Fresh Produce Network (FPN) Lincolnshire organised free deliveries of fresh produce to 10 care homes in South Holland. 

FPN members Davis Worldwide, Greencell, Karsten UK, LFP and Worldwide Fruit donated a total of 28 pallets of fresh produce, while Fresca donated a series of fruit boxes. 

The produce was collected and distributed by TopUp (Freshlinc) to 10 care homes and food banks. Thanks to this generosity more than 300 vulnerable people received much needed nutrition.

Peter Davis of Boston-based Davis Worldwide, which supported the UK FPN project, is now working with Louth Community Partnership and Generations Church to provide free packed lunches for families in need over the school summer holidays.

Schools and churches have offered their canteens free for food preparation in a Covid-secure environment.

The project helps families in the Louth area who may be struggling financially for whatever reason.

The Generations Church project is being run from the Trinity Centre in Eastgate in Louth, a community hub which is easily accessible for many people.

Until Thursday 27 August the project is offering a free packed lunch for children and young people (and parents too if required). 

These lunches are available for collection from the Trinity Centre between 11am and 12.30pm on the relevant dates. The project is feeding around 80 people each session. 

Anyone wanting to take advantage of the offer can do by emailing Sue at summerlunches@louthnet.com.
