The Well & Foodbank

well

 

Our foodbank is a new initiative to provide food for people in the most desperate need in our area.
We held our first collection day at Morrisons Friday 13th to collect food and other donations from shoppers to help families and individuals who have hit on hard times due to redundancy, bereavement or other crises.
The donations, which included nappies and baby products, will be distributed to people who have been recommended to the Foodbank scheme by social care agencies, such as the Citizens Advice Bureau.
The recipient is given a voucher which they can then take to a Foodbank distribution point to be exchanged for food. We are partnering with other churches to distribute enough food to last at least three days.
Liz would like to thank GBC for all the food they contribute week by week.  You are terrific.
