Well, you have been generous,

so let's start with a few thank yous and give a mention to some of those who stepped up this week. So here we go.

Thank you to

  • the congregation of St Andrew's Church who donated money to buy an Easter Egg for each child we help
  • Emma & her wonderful team at One Stop in Curry Rivel, who also donated Easter Eggs. What would we do without them (the shop, not the Easter Eggs)
  • The Memory Cafe, Curry Rivel has given us some Easter Eggs too
  • John for providing fresh veg from his allotment
  • and other too numerous to mention!

Foodbank volunteers want you to know that the kindness shown to the families they help is very much appreciated.

But the need for help is relentless, so this week's items for your shopping list are:

  • Tins of spaghetti & meatballs
  • Tinned corn beef & tuna fish
  • Fray Bentos pies
  • Cartons/tins custard
  • Coffee
  • Dried spaghetti
  • Pasta sauces/pasta bake sauces/pasta stir through sauces
  • Lunchbox bars
  • Toilet rolls & kitchen rolls

Wondering where or how to donate?

Donations can be delivered to St Andrews Church during the opening times (Wednesday 10.30-11.30) – especially fresh produce so it can be distributed on the same day.

As well as Wednesday mornings you can leave non-perishable items at:

  • St Andrews Church where you can leave donations any time the Church is open. You'll find a table inside the North Chapel at the front of the Church on the left hand side
  • there is also a box in the porch at St Catherine's Church, Drayton where you can leave non perishable goods at any time
  • donations can be made at the One Stop shop in Curry Rivel – they have a box – just ask
  • and at St James Church, Hambridge where you can leave non-perishable items in a box in the porch.

Monetary donations can be taken by volunteers on site during the usual Wednesday morning opening hours. The Food Bank does have a bank account and if you'd prefer to donate remotely or anonymously or in a way that may be more convenient for you, banking details can be given out if you would like to make a one-off or regular donations. Just call 01458 250997 or 07714 265384; or ask at the Food Bank for details
