You’ll know that charity work is both demanding and rewarding for anyone who is involved in it. If you own a charity shop on the high street, for example, then you’ll know how important public donations are and the important need for storage space. Oswestry is one place where the local community is coming together to help others.
The Shropshire Star reports that a community kitchen will be opening in Oswestry. The OsNosh will operate from the Holy Trinity Church every Thursday lunchtime and its meals will come thanks to the support of local supermarkets, allotment owners, shops and gardeners.
Tom and Ben Wilson are spearheading the community kitchen, which aims to support anyone who is struggling, including those people with financial difficulties.
Ben commented: “We want it to be a place where we can actually train and employ people and therefore give back to the community by providing people with an actual income and good food on a larger scale.”
Ben takes on the role of head chef at the OsNosh, while Tom works with other charities and helps to organise fundraising.
OsNosh hopes the food recycling project can “create an inclusive, warm and friendly environment where all are welcome”.
No doubt most people are aware of the focus placed on food wastage and the number of people across the country who need support. No matter which way you look at it, more can be done to help those who are struggling and OsNosh is one way of achieving that.
