Foodwise offers free meals to families in need – details

Please see this information provided by GBC.  Families are not allowed to apply direct, but the information below shows how referrals can be made through local organisations, schools and churches.

“I have been asked to draw your attention to the work that local charity Foodwise has been undertaking to provide meals to families in Guildford borough during the current crisis. It is currently producing around 1,600 meals per week and delivering these to nearly 200 families free of charge. You can find out more on its website (www.foodwisetlc.care).

Families are not able to self-refer, but local charities, schools or churches can refer people through the portal on the website. The website also lists the recipes that Foodwise prepare, but meals are also provided by Cook and the Caring Foundation.

You may wish to pass this information on to local organisations and groups in your own local communities working with vulnerable residents.”

April 1st 2020
Thank you so much for all the kind offers of help during this difficult time. Over and above our usual kind group of volunteers at the Care Committee we have received an overwhelming  response of an additional 21 people willing to collect and deliver groceries and prescriptions in and around Chilworth.
Thank you so much. As people are becoming more  aware of our service we have been receiving a steady stream of requests left on our answer phone (01483 538886) for help from 11 people needing shopping and medicines collecting.
Thank you again to everybody.
