Food for thought

You’ve almost certainly heard of foodbanks – perhaps you’ve even donated food or household products at a collection point located in one of the shops or churches in or around the town…

But how much do you really know about the work done by the volunteers who run and staff the Newark Foodbank?

One of those volunteers, Jenni Harding, joins the Girls Around Town on this week’s show to explain why, when and where the Newark Foodbank first opened its doors and how it’s grown since then.

Find out how the tinned, long-life, packet and non-perishable foodstuffs, basic toiletries and baby needs donated by the local community are helping to change the lives of single people, couples and families who, for a myriad of different reasons, find themselves short of money and in a crisis situation.

Tune in or listen online from 10am to 12 noon  on Sunday when there’ll be more food for thought from Rachel and Rosalyn as they share some of their own recipes for simple, nutritious meals.

And, if you miss the show, don’t forget to keep an eye on the GAT Facebook page for the link to the podcast early the following week…
