Foodbank May update

foodbankApril was a very busy month and stocks were running very low. It is only thanks to our churches that we can keep going. We have just completed a one day Tesco food collection and yet again it was heartening to see the generosity of the shoppers. They donated a fabulous 1278.84kg which has gone some way to filling up those empty spaces on our warehouse shelves.

We still have some shortage items and are always grateful of any donations but we’d be especially pleased to get
Plain rice
Tinned tomatoes
Tinned fruit
Tinned potatoes /instant mash    

We are out of toiletries and whilst food has to be our priority toiletries are always thankfully received
Shower gel
Tooth paste
Tooth Brushes - Are in short supply
Shaving foam

A big thank you to everyone who supports us through prayer and donations of food and money. We really could not exist without you.

If you have a bit more time to spare and would like to be volunteer for a shift, I am short of volunteers on a Friday morning.
This takes place at Mornington Community Project, 117 Ormeau Road between 10am and 1:30pm
If this is something you would like to know more about please contact me and I can tell you more about it.

Many thanks from your Church Champion, Brenda Johnston
