Almost 700 food bags went to Luton schools today thanks to

John O’Conner Ground Maintenance , a St Albans-based

company. John O’Conner responded to food charity

Jedediah’s call for help from businesses who have vans

they can spare for a few hours a week. Employees Dean

and Bunny (pictured) were at the charity’s base camp,

Bengeo Club, Hertford, bright and early with one of their

company’s large vans to collect a mountain of bags for

delivery. Packed by Jedediah weekly, these food bags

have provided a much-needed lifeline for families in

these straitened times: 60 schools across Herts, Beds & Merseyside are

now signed up for a regular bag of food for families in need

.

Charity founder, Cynthia Stroud, said she could not thank John O’Conner Ground

Maintenance enough for stepping up as the charity’s deliveries have got bigger and bigger. “We started small, but we now serve 2300 families (and growing), and we are immensely grateful for local companies who have vans and manpower to get the bulkier deliveries out in a timely way.”

If you own a van or think you can help pack and distribute the food, then go to Jedediah.org.uk to learn more about what the charity is all about or contact Cynthia on food@jedidiah.org.uk
