Although the food banks in this news story are a different setup from ours, it shows the level of need in this country.
Organisations working with vulnerable people make contact with us to request food for the people they know who need it.
We can arrange food parcels for individuals (packed in a sturdy large carrier bag), or for families (packed in a small box).
We arrange for the organisation to collect the food from us (whenever possible; occasionally we can deliver)
We do not wish to have contact with those in need - it is not our intention to assess need, and we depend on the skill, commitment and ongoing support from the professional carers whose job it is to support the vulnerable. We make sure they can do this by supplying the food to keep them in contact with their clients and to help them overcome short term problems.
If you are in need of a food parcel, please be aware we cannot give out parcels direct to individuals. Please ask any professional working with you eg teacher, minister, housing worker.
