The Churches Together Group have reached out to the community and taken on the task of delivering food parcels to those in need in the Newmarket and surrounding villages, especially the Free School Meal families and some other families that are identifed at this time.

The first week they prepared and delivered food parcels to 56 people, now into our 14th week,  Churches Together Newmarket and District have delivered 850 parcels helping 3491 people.

The Newmarket Covid-19 Fund enables this service to continue funds the food and toiletries for this scheme.  All help  to put together these parcels and delivering these parcels are from volunteers within the Churches Together community.
