  9. Request for food larder 'sky rockets'

    Food that could have ended up in the rubbish bin is currently being sent to about 600 people a week in Bedford.

    Food4, a project run by YMCA Bedfordshire, offers free food supplies to people who are isolated, frail or on the breadline.

    It includes fruit, vegetables, bakery and larder items donated directly from local suppliers, which would otherwise have ended up as waste.

    Many items have come from local stores and restaurants, that would have otherwise sat in their stores until lockdown ends, it said.

    Rebecca Ireland, business operations manager, said: "We have seen requests for food sky rocket."

    She estimated that 2.2 tonnes of food left the building last week.

    "We usually serve that much food in a month," she added.
