West Somerset Food Cupboard, January 2021
Food parcels since the project began in 2007 - 15,520 Food parcels so far this year - 120.
I have now completed 4 years since I took on the role of co-ordinator of the food cupboard and a lot has changed in that time. We have extended our storage space and moved into a different area of the church. We have also coped with lockdown and COVID restrictions and the volunteers are still smiling! It is a great privilege to be able to contribute to the work of the food cupboard as part of my ministry. Thank you all.
After Christmas I expected January to be a little quieter, it did start reasonably quietly but that didn't last and it is now becoming much busier again especially as this lockdown takes its toll. We have been fully occupied during our sessions in the Food Cupboard packing boxes and bags and sorting donations (which have been numerous and very gratefully received).
I must say thank you to all of you who continue to donate food items on a regular basis. As always those who receive the parcels have been very appreciative. We are still receiving a number of referrals for people who are waiting for benefits to come through and the food parcels are a lifeline for them. In addition we have families who are furloughed and are finding it very difficult to manage on the income that they currently have.
Currently we have a good stock of most foodstuffs, thanks to the generosity of all those who donate to us. We have plenty of tea, baked beans, sweet biscuits, soup, and tinned hot meats at the moment but would welcome the following items:
small jars of coffee,
long life milk,
tinned custard or rice pudding,
Ann Gibbs, Co-ordinator
To contribute in any way please contact them by email to: , phone 07795 080637 or use FaceBook message
The food cupboard has a Facebook page. If you are Facebook user please look for ‘W S Food Cupboard' and if possible like and share so that it is seen as widely as possible.
