Christmas Donations

We are always so thankful for the all the offers of collections and donations to the foodbank and have enjoyed meeting you as you dropped off your donations. Unfortunately things are a little bit different this year as we need to protect you and our volunteers.

If you  are a business, a church or a group wanting to organise a food collection please email [email protected] for the latest list of most wanted items and arrangements for drop offs.

If you are an individual or family thinking of donating we are asking that this year you consider donating a “Virtual Food Parcel”. We are currently using kindly donated money to buy from wholesalers. This helps to minimize the sorting process and handling for our volunteers. Donations can be made through  Golden Giving or Online Banking by following the links in the poster below. Money received will be used for food, toiletries and operational costs.

You will also see that we have resources to involve the children in a cut and stick Reverse Advent Calendar or a cut and stick Virtual Food Parcel.

If you want to print the Reverse Advent Calendar or Virtual Parcel and Cut and Stick Pictures click on the images below.

 

Current Operations

Yet another a whole month has passed since the last update. We have been very busy ensuring those who have been unable to afford adequate food have been able to access our food parcels.

Currently we are delivering to homes 5 days a week and also distributing food boxes through our key agencies.

We are here to help, so please contact us if you need food.

If you need food because you are unable to afford it please email [email protected] or phone 077 4333 2489

 

We have now reinstated our Permanent Food Collection Point in Tesco Newtownbreda.

We are grateful for all donations of non perishable food but we are is particular need of breakfast cereals, oats, rice, UHT milk, long life juice, instant mashed potatoes, tinned potatoes, tinned vegetables, tinned custard, rice pudding and coffee.

We are also using wholesalers to purchase our supplies with kindly donated money.
