Helping Residents of Sevenoaks, Kemsing, Otford, Riverhead, Seal, Dunton Green, Weald, Halstead or Shoreham who have been affected by lost income due to the Covid-19 lockdown.
Set up by the Care for Our Community Team in Sevenoaks. We wanted to spread our message of hope and compassion in this difficult time. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and collective actions can make the world a better place.
WHAT IS THE
Lockdown Larder initiative was launched in mid April 2020, by 'Care for Our Community - Sevenoaks' and is a short-term project to help Sevenoaks town residents whose income has been temporarily and drastically reduced during the coronavirus crisis and lockdown, and are struggling to pay for their weekly food shop.
Lockdown Larder is here to help the members of our community who were completely self-sufficient two months ago, and so may not fit the criteria for food banks, but now suddenly find themselves with no work or on a much reduced wage, through absolutely no fault of their own.
Lockdown Larder can supply a basic food basket of fresh & packaged produce, including meat, fish, fruit & vegetables, to help the household out, until they are able to get back to work and get back on their feet again.
Lockdown Larder want to preserve as much independence and dignity as possible for people during these extraordinary circumstances. Our residents will be able to ‘tailor make’ their basket from our list of Tesco supermarket staples, up to a maximum value of £25, so that at least some things stay familiar in this very strange world that we all find ourselves in.
