The Nottinghamshire County council has built a reserve of two weeks of frozen meals ahead of a possible no-deal Brexit, reports Nottingham Post.
According to the authority, the Government claims food shortages are unlikely, but some choices may be limited. A document detailing preparations for a no-deal shows the council has prepared provisional new menus for school dinners and has also prepared two-weeks’ worth of meals for its service for elderly people.
The news comes after the Nottingham City Council previously revealed that it was also stockpiling food, as well as keeping a three-week fuel supply in reserve. The county says it is not expecting difficulties in securing fuel supplies for its fleet of vehicles.
Additionally, all social care providers have been asked to confirm to the council they have contingency plans in place for a no-deal Brexit.
“Individual county council teams are continuing to assess risks and impacts, in comparison with technical notices published by the Government, and are actively considering actions ahead of potential “no deal” and other scenarios that could have local impacts,” further revealed the report.
