FOOD BANK

 

While the church is out of use, the box for any of your donations is in the porch of the Vicarage and it will be super if you can still provide the necessary things as you have been doing. During the winter months and at Christmas, it is as much needed as ever. I would remind you:

 

This provides a simple way of helping people who have fallen on hard times.

I would ask: Please ensure that your gifts are at least 6 months in date.

You do not have to be a church member to contribute!

The boxes are emptied regularly

and the contents given to the Wareham Food Bank.

The list of what is most appropriate is:

Tinned Soup Fruit Juice(carton) Pasta Sauces Baked Beans Rice/Sponge Pudding (Tinned)

Tomatoes (Tinned) Pasta/Rice (1kg) Tinned Vegetables Tea Bags/Coffee Instant Mash Potato

Tinned Meat/Fish Tinned Fruit Sugar (500g) Biscuits or snack bars

 

The FOOD BANK provides for local individuals and families in crisis -

Thank you for your support!
