Food Bank volunteers accept donations (fresh and non-perishable goods) every Wednesday between 10.30 and 11.30 at St Andrew's Church in Curry Rivel. They arrange parcels for distribution, deal with face to face queries, catalogue and date goods to ensure sell by/use by dates are adhered to and, whilst all this activity is underway, take stock of their shelves to try to ensure they have products available to satisfy the next weeks' demand.
It is a sad sign of our times that despite your continued generosity, the Food Bank finds itself struggling to meet the current call on its services.
It wont be a surprise for anyone to hear that right now need for help is escalating at a greater rate than ever and products are flying out faster than donations are coming in.
Much gratitude is due to the usual suspects, those upon which one can always rely to step up, but perhaps now is the time – if you have never donated to the Food Bank before – to help if you can. It's really quite simple.
This week's list is quite a long one and is obviously not exhaustive.
If you'd prefer to make a cash contribution, volunteers can take money or let you have the Food Bank account details so you can organise a direct transfer.
