Food Bank stocks are low!

ONGOING APPEAL 

The summer of 2019 sees many empty shelves.  Whilst donations during the harvest season and the run up to Christmas filled the shelves this supply has now all been used up.  The highlighted items have run out on occasion and are most likely to be needed.  Since the need fluctuates with demand and the donations that are received these items may change from time to time. 

Tinned Vegetables – peas – carrots – sweetcorn – green beans – tomatoes

Tinned Fruit All types e.g. Mandarins, Peaches, Pears, Fruit Cocktail

Tinned Meat – Meat Pies – Stewed Meat – Slicing Meat (ham corned beef)

Sponge Puddings – Custard – Rice puddings and similar

Baked Beans, Rice, Breakfast Cereal, Fruit Juice, Squash, Tea, Coffee, Biscuits, Jam, Marmalade, Peanut Butter, Pasta Sauce

Long life food from the above list (no fresh food please!) can be donated in our collecting boxes at The United Reformed Church in Street as well as Morrison’s and Earthfare stores in Glastonbury.  There is also a small box in Nationwide. All the churches in “Churches Together in Glastonbury” will also take donations. Many of the churches in the wider coverage area of BA6 and BA16 will take your donations for the foodbank but please check with them first.  Cash donations are also welcome – please consider filling in a Foodbank Gift aid form so that income tax can be reclaimed on your donation.
