West Somerset Food Cupboard - July 2018

Food parcels since the project began in 2007 - in 11,030
Food parcels so far this year - 1110

Dear Friends,
July has been an exciting month for the food cupboard in some respects. Firstly our new cupboards are now properly complete and in use. Already we are noticing the difference the extra space is making. Secondly the Revd Kenneth Cross took up his new role as Vicar of parish and it is lovely to be working with him knowing his support for the work of the food cupboard. Finally we had a visit from ITV West who wanted to find out more about the work of the food cupboard in West Somerset. It was a privilege to be able to tell them about the generosity of people in this area.
The demand has increased as the summer holidays have started and we continue to support a number of vulnerable people on a regular basis. At the moment we are supporting a number of families over the summer holidays. As we had anticipated these are families who can just about manage during term time when free school meals are available but struggle to make ends meet while the children are not at school.
Over the last few months I have included a list of the items that we put in our boxes to help people who wish to donate. We have had a good response to this, currently we are really in need of tins of cold and hot meats, UHT milk and tinned carrots, peas and potatoes.
Thank you all again for your support.
Ann Gibbs

Please join us for a Community Meal


You are warmly invited to the relaunch of our Community Supper on
Wednesday 15th November at The Beach Hotel.
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 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.

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?
