Liverpool families struggling with the cost of living will be able to find affordable, healthy food with the help of a new app.

The app enables people to find their closest community food space and Queen of Greens bus stop. Community food spaces are places where local people come together and share food and it also plays a major part in tackling local food waste.

The Queen of Greens bus brings affordable fresh fruit and vegetables to communities across Liverpool.

Jessica Shannon, who created the app in collaboration with Feeding Liverpool, an alliance of groups working to tackle food insecurity in the city, said: “The charities and volunteer organisations featured in the Feeding Liverpool app are at the forefront of tackling hunger across our city. As the cost of living continues to rise, an increasing number of individuals are facing hardships.”

She added: “It’s unacceptable for anyone to go hungry, and we are honoured to support these incredible services in reaching more people in need. By consolidating this vital information into an app, we make it easier for everyone to understand and access available services, ensuring they know where and when help can be found.”

Dr Naomi Maynard, director at Feeding Liverpool said: “Feeding Liverpool’s new app has been designed to make it easier for people to find out what food support is available in their local area.”

“We know that for one in three people in Liverpool affording enough good food for their family is a source of worry and stress each week. Many people are turning to community food spaces, such as food pantries, community shops and the Queen of Greens mobile greengrocer to relive some of this pressure.”

“The Feeding Liverpool App contains easy to use maps which direct you to community food spaces in and around your community, as well as sharing updates about the NHS Healthy Start Scheme and information for people needing emergency food support.”

“I’d encourage everyone in Liverpool to download the Feeding Liverpool App, and share it with your friends, family and neighbours.”
