Our stocks of food are looking quite good at the moment. We have a fantastic response to our Christmas appeal and donations have been very generous however the level of need is still very high and unfortunately is still increasing.
We are currently short of size 5 & 6 nappies, dried rice, coffee (small jars) - and we always need tinned meat, hot and cold, but we have plenty of tea and pasta.
In 2018 the Food Bank prepared 1156 emergency food parcels providing a weeks' worth of food to over 2100 people.
By the end of November this year, we have distributed 1247 food parcels helping 2342 people. This represents a significant increase.
