Well-Fed food deliveries – the story so far

Published: 10/06/2020

1.jpgEach week, Well-Fed, in partnership with Flintshire County Council, has been delivering meals, slow cooker bags and safety boxes to hundreds of vulnerable households in Flintshire free of charge - ensuring that residents in difficulty, residents who are self-isolating and unable to get out and residents in need in our sheltered schemes and supported housing will receive good, fresh food.

We are now over half way on delivering a 12 week emergency food support response to the Covid-19 situation. 

Over the past few weeks we have been able to support our shielded and most vulnerable tenants with nutritious healthy meals to get them through this troubling time. We are also providing fresh provisions in the form of Well-Fed shielded boxes. These consist of freshly prepared meals as well as provisions such as bread, milk, eggs and other fresh produce as well as any kind donations we have received to keep residents nourished. Our deliveries are reducing supermarket visits substantially and are often the only food some residents, forced to shield, will receive.  

The emergency food efforts for weeks 1-6 are as follows:
