Food parcel project is good news for the Moor

A NEW volunteer food distribution service has started up in Dewsbury Moor. 

The ‘Moor Food For Less’ project held its first weekly food parcel drop-in session on Wednesday at Dewsbury Moor ARLFC.

The project has set up links with food outlets including Nando’s and local supermarkets Morrisons and the Co-op, who will donate some of their waste.

A hot meal delivery service will be introduced in the next few weeks.

Those in need of food are asked to make a contribution for the parcels or, if they cannot afford, volunteer in a range of ways.

The service is being run in collaboration with the ‘Real Junk Food Project’ in Leeds.

Organiser Chris Jenkinson said: “Dewsbury Moor has had some negative publicity so it is nice to do something good for the area. We have just started but we would like to make it bigger – to the point where we have cafes for people to visit.

“I have committed to this for at least the next six months.”

‘Moor Food For Less’ will run at Dewsbury Moor ARLFC every Wednesday (3pm-7pm).
