Many of our congregations already make regular contributions to the Foodbank for which we are extremely grateful—in fact there would not be a Foodbank without you! Many others make a donation at Harvest festival time which fills the shelves at the warehouse for a while. To provide another boost to stocks during the year, the Big Little Give (BLG) campaign was introduced, to take place during March.

Donations of non-perishable food items are always welcome. The following "Shopping List" suggests other items that are very welcome.

Perhaps you could organize a collection at your place of work or your local school. I am happy to arrange to pick up any donations. I am also happy to come along and talk to your group about the Foodbank if that would help.

For any further information please contact me (Geoff Morris) on 01908 617050. See FoodBank for more information.

 

To find a collection point for food items,
have a look in your local church.

 

 

Thanks to generous donations received we are able to help many families including a single mother of three who was involved in an accident at work and could not support herself and her children on statutory sick pay.
