Honiton Foodbank

free-foodHad a really interesting meeting with Honiton Foodbank this morning, they do so much more than just give out food. They offer debt advice, addiction support, counselling, re-housing etc. I was there with two hats on really – as a member of Transition Town Honiton and a Honiton Town Councillor. I’m also following up on some fundraising I did with the Midweek Herald earlier this year where a team of us raised ¬£1000 for the foodbank (see http://bit.ly/O5gQso)

It must surely be a sign of the times that these Foodbanks are opening up everywhere but finding out more this morning about how many people volunteer to help others, I am astonished and extremely pleased to be reassured that there really is this supportive community aspect to Honiton.

So – next time you’re doing your weekly shop, buy a couple of extra bits to donate to the Foodbank. Really doesn’t have to be much (a tin of beans!) and you can drop them off at various points around town – the doctors, banks, town council, St Paul’s Church or to the King’s Centre, Lees Buildings.

If you, like me are angry about people going without food and shelter as a direct result of the cuts this government is making – join the Green Party or at least VOTE GREEN at the next election, so you have Green Councillors fighting Tory & Lib Dem austerity cuts and making our society a fairer place for EVERYONE to live.
