Washington Community Food Project. Our Church is one of the collection points for the Food Bank. There is a box at the back of the Church in which to put donations.
At 4 August, they were in need of: rice, pasta sauce, UHT milk, tinned tomatoes, cereals, jam, biscuits and sweets . Supplies of toiletries and sanitary products are always appreciate.
Examples of other items always needed are:-
Dried potato (Smash), UHT Milk, tins of vegetables and rice pudding. They always welcome tinned ham/corned beef/mince, dried spaghetti, cereals and pasta sauces plus the staples - tea and instant coffee. They would also appreciate donations of baby food, wipes and nappies. They also accept pet food.
As demand is increasing so it is vital that donations continue. They are very much appreciated by those people who find themselves in desperate circumstances.
People needing help, can ask the Jobcentre, their landlord, such as Gentoo, their health or social worker, some churches etc, who can make about a referral if they are in need.
The Food Bank doesn't deal with any self referrals or people who turn up on spec without going to a referral agency first."
