Record breaking month for issuing emergency food parcels

Record breaking month for issuing emergency food parcels
August 4, 2017 psenior

July has been another record breaking month for issuing emergency food parcels. We issued 146 parcels which is the highest we have ever given out in July and the second highest month ever in our records. We anticipate that now we are in the School summer holiday period, we will experience another record breaking month.  Here are a few facts & figures about our foodbank

  • Run entirely by volunteers at Reconnect, our main homeless site
  • Each emergency food parcel contains 21 food items
  • People can access this service up to 4 times per year
  • You can visit Reconnect from 9-7 daily or call 01283 547211
  • We have a shopping list available on our website under the Get Involved – food page

Thank you to everyone who helps us, to help our local Community
