“A new model that is sustainable and provides people with decent, quality food.”
“Good Food Hubs will ensure that everyone in the community will have access to better, fresher produce.”
“What every community needs; a food service that combats isolation and malnutrition in our older and vulnerable communities.”
“It’s reassuring to know that there’s a local initiative that is using fresh, affordable food as the catalyst to rebuilding communities. I’m very excited about it’s potential.”
ABOUT GOOD FOOD HUBS
Our starting point for the Hubs was to re-imagine Meals on Wheels and set out to create a new service that feeds everyone well – particularly older & vulnerable people across the community.
Through partnering with us, existing community centres across the LCR will have the opportunity to become a Good Food Hub. Each Hub becomes a good meal distribution point, selling our meals to the residents who use the centres’ services or are able to reach out to other residents who may be housebound. It’s a perfect mix; the centre knows its constituency best and they take the orders. We are then ready and able to supply great fresh meals, making sure everyone has access to healthier food delivered to the centre ready to be picked up by local residents (customers) or delivered into residents homes if they are unable to pick up for themselves.
A Good Food Hub links the best of a good food service to the best of community development/support – it’s Meals on Wheels re-imagined; it means that older people should never have to go hungry and it means that every centre that becomes a Hub will have the means to add a new and vital service to its delivery. Throughout 2017/18, we will open 10 Hubs across the Liverpool City Region – each one picked because the centre is already very good at connecting to its community. To open each one, we have a dedicated staff team able to assist a centre as they become part of the network.
