Blacon Beacon has been set up exclusively for residents of Blacon, following talks back in 2018 about the need to buy fresh food at a reasonable and affordable price. We also discussed ways we can look at supporting the community by sharing skills which will last a lifetime.
Not only do members of Blacon Beacon receive food, advice and support on a weekly basis, they also have access to web development or digital skills too in 1:1 sessions. Due to the pandemic some things have had to change but we hope to hold cooking classes again. We've been part of a Slow Cooker project, encouraging people to make healthy and delicious meals with the ease of a slow cooker and we just started a new recipe project where those who sign up get fresh ingredients delivered and a yummy recipe to try out.
We want to support the members of our community who need us most and this is where you come in... if you or someone you know may need a little support and advice to assist themselves at home we can help!
Blacon Beacon is a food charity which exists entirely for the benefit of Blacon residents. Registered with the Charity Commission as 'Pantry for Blacon' CIO registration number 1183763.
