Volunteers at Pudsey Community Project have intercepted bread and hundreds of eggs – and are giving them away in return for a donation.
The project, which is supporting people in Pudsey who are struggling due to the coronavirus lockdown, will be distributing the food to those requesting food parcels today and tomorrow.
But volunteer organisers behind the project also want to distribute as many as they can to the people of Pudsey.
As a one off, if you want a loaf of sliced bread and a tray of 30 free range eggs, attend drop off sessions at Pudsey Parish Church either tonight 6-8pm or tomorrow (Wednesday) morning 10am-12noon and get some to take away in return for a donation to the project.
People are encouraged to bring a carrier bag.
Organisers are saying perople can use their contactless card machine to make a donation at the door and are requesting people observe physical distancing of two metres minimum.
The food has short best-before dates on them but the bread should be good for a few days or will freeze and the eggs should be good for a week or two.
Pudsey Community Project is also welcoming donations of non-perishable foods and essentials, but especially: flour, cereals, nappies, rice, pasta, tinned fruit and veg, beans, baby formula, long life fruit juices, women’s sanitary items, cheese, marge/spread.
