Bedford has a new Community Larder

Community Larder at the ReUse Centre

A new Community Larder, which aims to help Bedford’s homeless and vulnerable people or those on means-tested benefits to access fresh food that they may not otherwise be able to afford, has opened.

It’s situated at 11 North Parade in the former 24/7 Cars office next door to Esquires.

The new premises opened today at 12pm and will be open from midday until 2pm every Thursday.

Now more than ever, we need your help to fund the Bedford Independent’s quality journalism that serves our community...

We choose to champion editorial independence, meaning we report the facts without bias and can stand up to those in power when we believe it’s needed.

We can give a voice to people in our community whose voices may otherwise not be heard. And we don’t have a paywall, so everyone can read the stories we publish for free.

But in this time of crisis, many news organisations all over the world are facing existential threat, with advertising revenues plummeting. We’re no different.

We work hard every day to bring you news, commentary, entertainment and announcements from across Bedford. We hope that, with your help, we’ll be able to continue this for many years to come.
