The Healthy Living Network manages the Ediblelinks project based in Atherstone, North Warwickshire. Previously known as North Warwickshire Food Bank, Ediblelinks uses food surplus to reduce poverty, stress and diet related ill health. We run a food bank and provide community groups with food enabling them to help more local people.

Ediblelinks was taken over by The Healthy Living Network in early 2017 and is currently funded by Warwickshire County Council and supported by North Warwickshire Borough Council and Ocado. Two transit vans were provided by Ocado, so the project could pick up food and deliver it out to community groups.

 

   

 

Food is collected from Ocado twice a week along with surplus fruit and vegetables from the Aldi headquarters, also in Atherstone. This food is given to people who have obtained an emergency food voucher from North Warwickshire Borough Council or who have been referred to the food bank through a partner organisation.

Food is also collected by community groups in North Warwickshire, Nuneaton and Bedworth. Some of the food is used on Honesty Shops, some is used in community cafes to provide affordable lunches for people and some of it is used by breakfast clubs in schools.

To find out more about the project, you can call 02476 322048 or 01827 718322. Find us on facebook.
