A NEW food club is set to benefit Barrow residents this month with the aim to help alleviate hunger.

The Well Communities in Barrow have teamed up with hunger fighting charity Fareshare to launch a new club that will see its first session on September 28 at 1pm at the Greengate Centre on Greengate Street.

Those who attend the food club will be handed out ready-made variety bags of produce by the team which will vary on a week to week basis.

In exchange, they are asking for a £3 contribution to help the service to continue.

Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, strict social distancing measures will be in place.

Users of the service will have to adhere to a queue and collect system.

Anyone who has any questions about the initiative can get in touch by calling: 07367348986.
