All food to be non-perishable, please see “shopping list” for suggested donations.
Big or small, every gift you give helps transform lives.
Our food bank is run by local people for local people – we rely on the community’s support to ensure we can continue to stop people going hungry. Can you invest in the future of our project and help us provide much-needed support to people in crisis in our community?
Financial donations can be donated at either the donation point at St Lawrence, or The Sands. Receipts are given.
Volunteers are required at both St Lawrence’s and The Sands for the donation sessions. This hour or half hour commitment would see you join a rota, so just one hour a month would be helpful.
If you are interested please contact the food bank telephone on 07596 690 902
All volunteers are recruited following the Churches Safer Recruiting Policy, involving a short form to complete, giving details of referees and an informal interview
Training is provided including safe manual handling and personal safety training.
All support through prayer for the work of the food bank would be appreciated
