EYCS staff take action after Ted-EX talks
Following on from the inspirational day of Ted-Ex talks Melissa Filby and Karen Baker decided to start a Foodbank Collection Point in the Taw View offices in Barnstaple. One of the talks from Izzy and Jess was on how they had worked with their local supermarket and foodbank and introduced a labelling system within the store. This was so successful it is being rolled out nationally.
After the day of talks we didn’t want to just walk away and not do anything, we couldn’t solve climate change on our own, but we thought about what small thing we could do to make a difference? So we launched the foodbank collection point, we were very pleased with our first weeks collection and look forward to keeping momentum going to get regular donations for people in crisis.
