 …. and now the Challenge is this ….

Throughout the past year Wansbeck Valley Food Bank [WVFB] has been able to supply something like 9,500 day’s-worth of food to local residents.

And if that figure is difficult to grasp then imagine that every day in 2016 twenty people received a full days supply of food which adds up to almost 30,000 meals.!

And what’s more since January 2017 the increase in demand continues and currently we are on course to provide something like 36,000 meals this year. Now none of this could have been done without your help and generosity of food and funding but now a new and immediate challenge lies ahead.

Please help us fill the shelves  with Tinned Meat, Long Life Milk, Tinned/Dried Potatoes, Tubs of Butter/Spread, Toilet Rolls, Custard, Cereal, Rice Pudding, Tinned Pasta, Tinned Tomatoes, Tinned Fruit, Jars of Jam, Pre-packed Cheese, Tinned Vegetables. 

Linda Fugill is our Wansbeck Valley Food Bank project manager and can help you get started! 07841 908477 or wansbeckvalleyfoodbank@gmail.com

And remember your help will make a difference.
