I was honoured to have been invited to chair the Feeding Leicester Steering Group. Feeding Leicester is a really important project that will raise awareness of food poverty throughout the city and find ways to make sure everyone can access healthy and affordable food.

Lots of local organisations are involved in the project including De Montfort University, the City Council, Feeding Britain, Action Homeless, B-Inspired and many more.

Over the coming months we’ll be working together to find new ways to support local people who are struggling to make ends meet.

As part of the Feeding Leicester project we have also been awarded additional funding to expand the holiday hunger programme. This means that this year over 22,000 meals will be given out to children from right across the city over the summer holidays.

I am proud to be part of this project and I look forward to updating you on our work over the months ahead.

On Friday I visited the new A&E department at Leicester’s Royal Infirmary.

A&E consultant Dr Lee Walker and Geriatrician Dr Richard Wong showed me how they are working to improve care for frail elderly people.

Both have stressed to me the huge importance social care and community services can play in helping people live longer in their own homes and reduce the pressure on our A&Es.

On Friday I visited the Food Stop Foodbank run by Action Homeless and met the amazing staff and volunteers that work there.  

We all hope that we’ll never need to visit a foodbank, but sometimes people can find themselves in a desperate situation. I am thankful to all the staff and volunteers who ensure people who find themselves without enough money to buy food, do not go hungry. 

They told me they particularly need cooking oil, eggs, UHT milk, fruit & veg. If you can help one of our cities foodbanks, then please do get in touch with them.
