Stamford charity calls it a wrap on take-away meal service

After creating over 20,000 meals to help the local community through the pandemic, Second Helpings of Stamford feels it’s time to focus on its pre-pandemic mission to ‘feed bellies, not bins’.

An award winning Stamford charity, whose aim is to reduce food waste, has finally stopped its take away meal service which it started to support the early days of the pandemic. Volunteers at Second Helpings have prepared over 20,000 meals from surplus supermarket food that would otherwise have been thrown in the bin. 4000 meals were delivered through the Support our Stamford volunteers during the lockdown.

The charity will now begin to focus on it's original aim to 'feed bellies, not bins' and re-open its Community Fridge, located in the passageway between North Street and Barn Hill.  It will also work towards re-opening its Saturday Café in the very near future.
