In North Herts we have many food provision groups. Some of the groups aim to help those in need, some aim to reduce food waste and others do a combination of the two.
If you are interested in gaining access to a group, finding out more about the work they do, getting involved or donating, please see the information below.
Watch our short video on North Herts Food Provision Network, illustrating how the council has worked with organisations across the district to help local communities through the pandemic and now with the increasing cost of living.
If you are struggling then visit our cost of living web page for help and advice.
