Launched on 1 May, we are pleased to announce the arrival of our emergency food boxes. The food boxes are provided by our independent food support network based in Cambridgeshire
Each week surplus foods from supermarkets and farms are boxed in individual boxes. Depending on availability each box contains 10 ambient items (pasta,rice,canned goods) and 5 fruit and vegetable items weighing approx 5kg. The contents are unpredictable as you can imagine and vary each week.
The treat boxes are not means-tested. However our goal is to enable vulnerable people to join the scheme. You can sign up for one here (opens in another tab/window)
Please note if you require continuous food support and have a family, the food treat box will not meet your needs beyond one or two meals. We offer food packs tailored to your circumstances and needs and provide cooked packed meals in microwaveable containers which can be refrigerated or frozen.
