We understand how difficult it can be for many families to have access to healthy produce, especially since Covid19 has affected communities living in deprived areas.

Wessex Heartbeat will continue to support Food Banks by distributing fresh fruit and vegetables to the Youth and Families Matters, Basics Bank in Totton and the Big Difference Meals Initiative in Southampton, ensuring families across the region have access to fresh fruit and vegetables to help them make healthy lifestyle changes.

Supported by the Rotary Clubs of New Forest and Southampton, the distribution efforts are set to continue as the Covid19 pandemic sees more families seek extra support.

A healthy diet with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, is a key factor in reducing your risk of developing coronary heart disease, reducing your risk of diabetes and high blood pressure.
