Food for Thought Purbeck

We work with FareShare to offer good quality surplus supermarket food at low cost to Swanage and Purbeck residents.
The first FareShare larder, hosted by St Mark’s School, aimed to support families identified through Isle of Purbeck schools. However we hope to get a second FareShare larder located more centrally in the Town where there will be a more open system to join. Watch this space!
For any enquiries please contact our Secretary: Cllr Debby Monkhouse.
