After only nine months in operation, our foodbank has had the privilege of supporting over 1,000 individuals in crisis with nutritionally balanced food packs covering at least 3 meals for 3 days. That is nearly 10,000 meals, which is a lot of soup, beans & pasta! We could not have done this without the amazing generosity of the general public donating food, the support of our front line referral partners or the dedicated and hard work of our volunteers.
Unfortunately, this milestone in the life of our foodbank is one we would prefer not to be celebrating but it is an amazing achievement that we should pause, just for a wee moment, to acknowledge before we carry on helping those in food poverty.
Thank you and God bless,
