 Little Fishes and Mustard Seeds 2018

West Somerset Food Cupboard, December 2019

West Somerset Food Cupboard Newsletter
December 2019

Food parcels since the project began in 2007 - 13,557
Food parcels so far this year - 1622

Dear Friends,

This is the last newsletter for 2019 and before anything else I must say THANK YOU to everyone who has donated to us. It has been an absolutely amazing few weeks and we have been overwhelmed with the generosity of so many people in the lead up to Christmas.
December, as ever, was a very busy month. I am very grateful to all the regular volunteers who worked so hard and to all the extras who appeared at the busiest times to help with the Christmas preparations.
As always those who receive the parcels have been very appreciative. Over the month of December over 300 boxes and bags have been delivered to clients which is a massive total and clearly indicative of the need that there is. It is also worrying to note that this total is much the same as last year despite the fact the Quantock Foodbank has now been in full operation for over a year and, I am sure, has also been very busy.
The cupboards are currently very full and we really do not have room for any more of certain items, we have more tea, soup and pasta than we can handle so please could you spread the word and avoid these items for the time being? That said, we do need donations of milk, fruit juice, coffee, sugar, rice, tinned hot dogs and cold meats.
I have no doubt that in a few weeks time we will have different needs but for now I would be very grateful if the message could be shared with those people who donate regularly.
As we begin 2020 I have a couple of dates booked to speak to community groups about the work we do and I am happy to do more if the opportunity arises.

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.
