West Somerset Food Cupboard, September 2021
Dear friends and supporters of the West Somerset Food Cupboard
Thank you for your continued support of and interest in what the Food Cupboard does to reduce food insecurity in the area. And thank you for listening when we request specific items - it really helps. If you'd like to know how/where to donate please contact me (details below) and I'll let you know where your closest collection point is. As a result of your generosity our food stock levels are fairly good at the moment.
We don't currently need:
• tea or coffee
• rice or pasta
• tins of soup or tomatoes
• tins of fish or hot meat meals
We would welcome:
• tins of peas, carrots, sweetcorn or potatoes
• tins of hot dogs and meatballs
• tins of macaroni or spaghetti hoops
• tinned custard or rice pudding
As well as the kindness of individuals from within the community, we are very grateful to staff teams at local stores. Tesco in partnership with Fareshare UK, Morrisons, and the staff and customers of Porlock Spar continue their generous giving. We have also received helpful and practical support from the Co-op in Alcombe and, with their help, we are trialling a fresh fruit and vegetable scheme which will add nutritional value to the food that we distribute.
August has actually been a quieter month in terms of food boxes going out, 60 have been distributed throughout the month bringing the total so far in 2021 to 710.
If you'd like to know more, or have any comments or suggestions, we'd love to hear from you.

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.
