Food, glorious food. Thank you all

4th February 2019

We at the Foodbank would like to thank everybody for their generosity over December. This has been the best December since opening, which is amazing as the Foodbank is now 6 years old. So much food came in we were unable to sort it and see what it consisted off. That job was carried out by wonderful volunteers over January. So, a huge thanks to that team as well. We now know that we have all the pasta, beans and soup we will need for the whole year. That is impressive. The food items we will be requesting, to keep the food boxes nutritionally balanced, at our supermarket events will be Tinned Stew, Mince or chicken in white sauce. Tinned Rice pudding and Curstard. Tinned fruit and UHT Blue/Green milk and long life fruit juice. These will be our priorities over the coming year of 2019. Thanks to our supporters we assisted over 7,000 requests for assistance in 2018 including 1,900 children. We will continue to do our best to act as the conduit between your compassionate generosity and the needs of those facing the food crisis.
