West Somerset Food Cupboard June 2017
Food parcels since the project began in 2007 - 8905
Food parcels so far this year - 832
June has been a very busy month in the food cupboard and at one point we almost ran out of boxes to pack the food in! Fortunately the box company and our brilliant volunteers came up trumps and we now have plenty of boxes ready for packing. The need for food parcels has been high over the last few weeks and I don't expect that this will change. Recently we have had a number of new clients who have found themselves struggling because benefits are taking time to come through or because benefits have been stopped (for a variety of reasons) and they are having to go through the application process again. Some of the stories that we have heard have been heart breaking and it just makes me realise how valuable the donations of food are for our clients.
Ann Gibbs, Co-ordinator.

Minehead Street Pastors:
In November, we were delighted to have a visit from Justin the Archbishop of Canterbury who has launched a programme of Renewal and Reform in the Church of England.
The Archbishop met with the 6th Form at West Somerset College for a Question & Answer session and then with all of the School Pastors.
Will you Join us?
School and Street Pastors are fully trained volunteers from all the churches of Minehead. It is drawing us closer together through prayer and action.
We are always looking for more people. Why not come along as an Observer to see what it is like?
