Free food sessions to help King’s Lynn residents trying to make ends meet, due to increasing food costs are to return to South Lynn on Monday 5 December.
Lily, a service that is owned and managed by the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, is organising another interactive pop-up session to be held at The Cornerstone Café, inside King’s Lynn Baptist Church in South Lynn following a well-attended session during the October half term.
Cllr Sam Sandell, Cabinet member for people and communities at the borough council, said:
“Following successful sessions held in North and South Lynn it’s good to see them return in time for Christmas. The cost of living is affecting us all and these free-to-attend sessions mean that people can drop-in to them and pick up some seasonal saving tips about how to cook healthy and tasty food without breaking the bank.”
Norma’s kitchen will be running the session with festive themed cooking demonstrations and tips to cut costs this Christmas. There will be activities for young pre-school children and refreshments available.
Lily helps people who are feeling lonely or isolated by supporting them to connect to organisations that can help in the area.
Lily has a strong focus on community development, by:
- Helping groups to arrange activities and encouraging volunteering.
- Providing small grants to community groups.
- Providing support for employers, schools, and colleges to help them tackle loneliness.
