Tunbridge Wells Community Larders

Community larders receive surplus and short date food from supermarkets and local suppliers to distribute to people in the community.  Over the past few months, communities within our town have come together to initiate community larders with the aim that local families and individuals in need will be able to visit the larders and leave with a balanced bag of groceries for a modest donation. These larders can also provide household cleaning products, personal hygiene products, baby care and even some wonderful treats.
