An urgent message from the Swanage Food Bank on Sunday 3rd May:
The Food Bank has been so busy this past week they've run out of all desserts - tinned fruit, custard, milk puddings, instant puddings. They've also no meat products left, including Frey Bentos pies, cold meats and tins of minced beef, stew, chilli con carne, chicken in sauce etc. Packets of rice, and tinned vegetables are also low in stock. The luxuries of sweets and chocolates have been used up, which aren't strictly necessary but lift the clients' hearts a bit at this difficult time.
.... and, in case you are without the following general information, we include it here:
