…. 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 the year twenty people received a full days supply of food which adds up to almost 30,000 meals during 2016!
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.
Now Christmas is passed it is when so many of us are preoccupied with making our own plans and activities for 2017 and it’s so easy for us to overlook the plight of those who’s immediate priority is provide the next meal. Understandably food donations are not so plentiful or regular at the moment but the demands on the Food Bank continue.
Please help us fill the shelves. with meal helpers, soups, vegetables, fruits, tuna, meat, rice, cereal, all of the foods that help make nutritious meals for families.
Linda Fugill is our Wansbeck Valley Food Bank project manager and can help you get started! 07841 908477 or firstname.lastname@example.org
And remember your help will make a difference.
