Melton Learning Hub
The Melton Learning Hub is a charity which supports young people and the elderly and vulnerable, primarily in Melton Mowbray, but also further afield. The Hub offers a wide variety of vocational qualifications to young people 14-19 who are excluded or at risk of exclusion from mainstream education.
Melton Learning Hub has linked up with Melton Borough Council to create a food bank from its premises. A number of volunteer drivers and staff from the Hub are delivering food to families and people in need across Melton. The service is promoted through Facebook and other social media and is continuing to help people in isolation but also those people who have experienced a sudden loss of income.
The Hub has an industrial kitchen on site (funded by a grant from Leicestershire County Council 5 years ago) which is being used to prepare food for delivery to local people who need food parcels. A team of 22 volunteer drivers are helping with deliveries of food, essentials and also in supporting the vulnerable and elderly with getting to doctors and hospital appointments.
