mundesley community larder 750
Mundesley church larder avoids food waste
 

A community larder has been set up in Mundesley by the local parish church for anyone to collect food that would otherwise go to waste. There is also a community fridge. Tony Rothe reports.

 
The larder was set up by All Saints Church, Mundesley, and the first distribution session was held on Friday July 17.  It now operates every Friday morning from 8.30am to 10.30am at the All Saints Community Rooms. To allow for social distancing visitors should enter via the gate on Hilda Road and leave via Cromer Road, hand sanitiser will be available as people arrive.
 
Anyone can add to the larder from their allotment/vegetable patch, and anyone can take away regardless of circumstances. Take away coffee and cake are also available.
 
The organisers say “The larder has opened to receive food and give food so that we can all reduce food waste. Anyone can bring food, and anyone can take food away.  Food that would normally be thrown away needs to be put to good use.”
