Leftover food charity plans new hubs in Cornwall

A charity that distributes unwanted food hopes to expand further into Cornwall because of what it says is a growing demand for its services.

The Plymouth-based Devon and Cornwall Food Association (DCFA) gives away food donated by shops, dairies and producers which was destined for landfill.

Managers said they wanted to develop hubs in Bodmin and Helston.

The Reverend Alison Shaw, from the DCFA, said hubs would help it "really take off" and speed up distribution.

"A lot of out trustees are Cornwall-based," she said. "They are working very hard to spread it out everywhere."
