The local voluntary group, Hambleton Community Action have recently teamed up with Hambleton FoodShare to create a new website for the organisation.

Marketing Officer for Hambleton Community Action, Emily Brooker, has worked closely with Margaret Brice, Project Co-ordinator of Hambleton FoodShare to design the site, which launched in early December.

Hambleton FoodShare is a community partnership which provides emergency food parcels for people who are struggling to feed themselves and their families. The aim of this scheme is to provide a three-day emergency food parcel to people in temporary financial crisis who otherwise would have to go hungry due to their various circumstances.

In order to make it as easy as possible for people to access support, the new website has simplified the process for members of the public who require information on how to receive a food parcel. The site also informs people on where to donate food, how to get involved and includes links to other useful organisations that may be of help.

Margaret says: “We are absolutely delighted with the outcome and cannot recommend the help received highly enough.  The result is that we are much more accessible and ready for the next phase into the New Year as we aim to expand into more areas of need.  Indeed we had a much higher than average amount of donations during the Christmas period and I am convinced that the new website was a major factor in folk finding us”

Hazel Kirby, Chief Officer for Hambleton Community Action commented on the new site:

“I am delighted that we have been able to help Hambleton Foodshare with their website, and hope that it helps to raise the profile of their essential work”.
