Council earns certificate recognition over its support of East Riding Food Poverty Alliance and local food banks
The East Riding Food Poverty Alliance (ERFPA), a partnership of organisations providing food bank provision that includes the People’s Pantries in Pocklington, Market Weighton and Holme on Spalding Moor, has presented its first Certificate of Recognition to East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC).
Leader of the ERYC, Councillor Richard Burton, accepted the award at a recent socially distanced presentation ceremony.
The award recognised the council’s support for ERFPA and the individual food banks that are part of the alliance.
Natalie Taylor-Robinson, at the ERFPA, said: “We wanted to thank the ERYC for its continued support.
“We look forward to continuing to strengthen this relationship and working together to ensure that residents in East Riding are supported and no one has to go hungry.
“Going forward we will seek to present more certificates to other organisations and businesses that tackle food poverty.”
