West Somerset Food Cupboard, December 2020
Food parcels since the project began in 2007 - 15,400
Food parcels so far this year - 1864
THANK YOU to everyone who has donated to us throughout 2020 and for all the Christmas extras donated over the last few weeks. It has been absolutely amazing and we have been overwhelmed with the generosity of so many people. So many individuals, voluntary groups and businesses have responded to the needs of others that, despite the number of boxes ordered for Christmas (almost 400) our cupboards are not empty!
December, as ever, was a very busy month. I am very grateful to all the volunteers who worked so hard in the busiest of times to help with the Christmas preparations. As always those who receive the parcels have been very appreciative. We have had many referrals for people who needed help over the Christmas period and the agencies working with us have collected numerous parcels and bags to support them. Over the month of December nearly 500 boxes and bags in total have been delivered to clients.
We have plenty of beans, cereal, tea, biscuits, soup and pasta. That said, we do need donations of long-life milk, fruit juice, tinned hot dogs, tinned potatoes and tinned carrots or mixed veg. Financially we are also in a good position and we continue to consider ways of using the funds we have to enhance the work of the food cupboard. I can only say again how grateful we are to every single one of you who has made a donation over the past year. You really are making a difference!
As we begin the new year I really do wish you all the best for 2021 and the hope that it will be a better year for all.
Items needed for the West Somerset Food Cupboard:
Long life milk
Litre boxes of fruit juice
Tinned hot dogs
Tinned cold meat
