Supporting the Swanage Food Bank in these difficult times

As one can imagine the Food Bank is under particular pressure at the moment, and that pressure is only likely to increase as things become difficult for many families that are struggling financially. 

The Food Bank may need some more delivery drivers and cars in the near future. We will put up a request on the website when this becomes apparent.

Donations of money are always useful and will be most gratefully received.  They may be gift-aided.

The collection points in all of the churches are likely to be emptied more often than the once a week that is usual, due to increased demand.

Fresh bread and milk may be taken to the Food Bank (at the Salvation Army Hall) at lunchtimes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. 

Long-life milk and other less perishable products can be deposited in the bins in St Mary’s and other churches and at supermarket collection points. 

Currently, there is a particular need for:

Tinned meat, such as corned beef and hot dog sausages, especially those that do not need a cooker to use; chemist items such as toothpaste, toilet paper and female hygiene products.
