Foodbanks distribute airline surplus

As more flights are cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, thousands of airline meals are also going to waste.

To address this, the Lincolnshire Food Partnership has been working with Lincolnshire foodbanks and community larders to make sure this surplus of food reaches those who need it.

Volunteers from fifteen foodbanks across Lincolnshire, have played a huge part in storing and distributing thousands of frozen airline meals to people facing food insecurity in the run up to Christmas.

This month, a further pallet of over 1000 meals is being shared among nine foodbanks across our county.

The entire operation stems from the kindness, van-driving and logistical agility of our friends and Food Partners at Eudaimonia in Gainsborough, who have kindly used their freezer vehicles to collect and distribute the meals across the county.

Such an impressive feat of flexibility and co-operation cannot be understated, especially under the current circumstances!

So to all those involved – thank you!
