Calder Community Cares run food shares. It is different from a food bank in that you do not have to be in receipt of benefits or to have been referred. With the rising cost of living especially energy bills, more and more people in the community may wish to use Food Share. Food such as bread, pastries, cakes, occasionally fruit and vegetables past their best by date is normally thrown away by supermarkets at the end of the day. Volunteers collect the food and it is taken to St James' on Saturday and Sunday mornings where people can then drop by and help themselves to the "potluck" food. If you need regular help, contact Calder Community Cares go to their website and register with them.

If you wish to volunteer to help St James' with the Saturday and Sunday morning collection, please email event(at)machpelah.uk [Replace the (at) with @ ]
