April 2021 Update

In the first three months of this year we have received over 400 referrals and supplied over 15,000 meals into the local community helping many individuals and families in difficult situations.

We thank you again for every donation, your support is so important and valued. At the moment we are well stocked with pasta, baked beans, soup, rice and breakfast cereal. However, if you would like to add to your shopping we would appreciate tins of rice pudding, sponge puddings, instant pasta and packets of microwave rice, thank you.

Everyone needs help at some time, so if you are struggling, then please contact one of the agencies we partner with who can request food on your behalf. A list of our partner agencies can be found on our website.

New Year update

At the start of 2021, we would like to wish everyone a very Happy and Peaceful New Year. The past year has many memories and one that stands out for us is the overwhelming generosity of so many people. We have been so encouraged by many individuals, schools, churches and businesses who have donated so generously. A huge thank you from everyone at the Food Bank, as a result of your giving we have been able to bless many families and individuals.
The year 2020 became our busiest one so far, with 1433 referrals received and over 35,000 meals supplied into the local community.
A special thanks to all our volunteers who have put many hours in to make all this possible.
We value all your ongoing support and interest as we enter this new year.
