How Rose Vouchers help Kelly’s family

“I had a baby during lockdown and I’ve got a six-year-old and a four-year-old.  With the children being at home more in lockdown, the Rose Vouchers have been a lifesaver as I’ve been able to access more fruit and vegetables.

The children are now eating 10 times more fruit, including berries and strawberries, which can be expensive. I feel we are eating healthier. I cook from scratch, I do not use jars and I’m budgeting.

The stall holders are lovely, very helpful and I have had some deliveries also.

I feel my mental health has eased as I now take time out to attend the cook and eat sessions [a weekly virtual cooking group] and family cooking sessions.

The staff at my Family Centre have been brilliant and so supportive and helpful.”
