Remember this grim old photo when the cupboard was bare?
Well, the Food Bank is pretty low on stock right now. Kind people still continue to donate but the number of families seeking help is growing.
Which just goes to show so many of us are finding things tough at the moment.
Here's a list of items below that are currently in short supply at the food bank, and would be much appreciated this week (18th May 2023), so if you can help at all by popping an extra item in your trolley, your donation would be very welcome.
And just in case you were wondering ... ...
There are several places you can leave your donation -
- take your non perishable goods to St Andrew's Church in Curry Rivel any day – the church is open during daylight hours – and leave it in the North Chapel, which is situated diagonally to the right of you as you enter through the main door
- if your donation is of perishable/fresh produce please take it only between 10.30 and 11.30 a.m. on Wednesday so that volunteers on site can deal with it and distribute same day
- take your donation (non perishable) to St Catherine's Church in Drayton where you will find a box in the porch specifically for the purpose
- One Stop in Curry Rivel has a box where you can place your donations – just ask!
- make a cash contribution, volunteers can take money or let you have the Food Bank account details so you can organise a direct transfer
- and there is a box in the porch at St James Church, Hambridge where you can leave non-perishable items
To seek help or offer help please ring 01458 250997 or 07714 265384
