West Somerset Food Cupboard, April 2020

West Somerset Food Cupboard Newsletter
April 2020

Food parcels since the project began in 2007 - 14,157
Food parcels so far this year - 600

Dear Friends,

As I write this we are in our sixth week of lockdown and we don't know how much longer the restrictions will be in place.

The need for food boxes has doubled over the last few weeks which is not unexpected in the current crisis. People who cannot work, vulnerable people and many families are finding it hard to make ends meet at the moment and they are often feeling pretty desperate when referred to us. It is humbling to hear their stories and how grateful they are when their food box arrives.

I am including a list of the items that are in short supply, to help people who wish to donate. I hope you may be willing to pass on the list to those who are interested as we are constantly in need of all these items while demand is high:

Tinned fruit
Tinned spaghetti
Tinned tomatoes
Tinned potatoes, peas, carrots and other veg.
Tinned custard or pudding rice
Tinned cold meats
Tinned hot meats
Savoury biscuits
Fruit juice.

Thank you all again for your support.

Ann Gibbs
Food Cupboard Co-ordinator
