15th August 2018 Update and thanks

Dear Foodbank Supporters and Donors,

Since the last update, which was nearly two weeks ago on 4th August, we have distributed food to 73 people, (which has included 22 children).There is still some data to enter, and we will reflect this in the next update. Our volunteers have ‘signposted’ the adults visiting our four centres to further help and support in order to begin to move them out of the crisis they are in.

ASDA; SAINSBURYS; ATTLEBOROUGH CO-OP; BULKINGTON CO-OP; YORKSHIRE BANK; NUNEATON TOWN HALL; CAFFE NERO; NUFFIELD HEALTH GYM and many local churches.

SHOPPING LIST

We know that people like to know what we are particularly in need of when they are thinking of donating food, and at the moment we would be really grateful for:

Puddings; Fruit Juice; UHT Milk; Tinned Stews; Meatballs; Tinned Meat;

As always, any donations at all are very warmly welcomed, but the above items are particularly needed.

 

WE ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR THE ONGOING SUPPORT OF THE COMMUNITY, AS WE WORK TOGETHER TO FEED PEOPLE GOING HUNGRY IN NUNEATON

 

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO DONATES

We all would like to thank everyone who donates to the foodbank –  Churches – Schools – local businesses and organisations, and individual donors, who regularly donate food to help those in need locally.

We are always very pleased to receive individual and corporate cash donations, which help us to purchase bread and spread and other items, such as baby milk, nappies etc which we add to foodparcels as needed.

 

 

VOLUNTEERING

In order to provide the support needed at our four centres, which working together give access five days a week to emergency food parcels for those in need, we rely on the help of volunteers. We are always grateful for the help of volunteers, and there are a number of different jobs that need to be done in order to enable the Nuneaton Foodbank to operate efficiently.

If you would like to help us by being a volunteer please contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator (nfbvolunteers@gmail.com).

Again many thanks to you all for your ongoing generous support.

Kind regards,

David
