West Somerset Food Cupboard, May 2019
Food parcels since the project began in 2007 - 12,525
Food parcels so far this year - 590
The last month has been busy again and we had to pack some extra boxes during one or two weeks to meet demand. I have heard some distressing accounts of clients in desperate need who have been moved into new accommodation and are struggling to make ends meet. On a more positive note we have also received a number of donations from local organisations and individuals which makes a huge difference to our ability to meet the needs in our community.
We are very much in need of certain items for our food boxes as demand continues to be high. The following are the items which we frequently have to replace:
Tinned potatoes, peas, carrots, Tinned custard or pudding rice, Tinned cold meats, Rice, Savoury biscuits, Coffee, Long life milk, Fruit juice.
We currently have a surplus of cereal, pasta, beans and soup. We provide fresh eggs for agents to put in the boxes when we have them. However, we cannot use other perishable goods as we cannot store them and we don't know how long boxes will be stored by some agencies.
I am so grateful to all the volunteers who just get on with the job and get things done. Thank you all again for your support.
Ann Gibbs, Co-ordinator

MINEHEAD COMMUNITY SUPPER
Come and share with us a delicious two course supper giving you the
opportunity to see what we offer at our community meal. This normally
takes place on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month between 5pm and 6pm at The Beach Hotel, Minehead, and is attended by those who have been given a free meal voucher by local support agencies thereby giving them the opportunity to engage with others and enjoy a heart-warming healthy supper in pleasant surroundings.
To enable us to offset these costs we encourage the general public
to join us at this time and donate £5.00 for their supper.
