The CRP’s ‘Food on the Move’ initiative aims to deliver nutritious meals to school children from vulnerable families in Hampshire.
With the help of the ‘Friends of Brockenhurst Station’, the CRP has arranged for food supplies to be delivered to Priestlands School in Lymington. From here, student lunch bags and family food boxes are being delivered by community volunteers to pupils’ homes in and around Brockenhurst, Lymington and the surrounding area.
Delivery vehicles are packed carefully with two meals for each student and a family food box, which are topped up with items from the schools’ food bank.
David Jones, Stakeholder Liaison Manager said: “I’m really pleased that CrossCountry is able to help deliver such an innovative project as part of a local community response to the current crisis.
“This summer’s ‘Music on the Move’ events which were due to take place on board our trains between Brockenhurst and Reading have understandably been cancelled, so we are thrilled that our Community Engagement Funding is being put to such good alternative use by our CRPs.”
