Urgent! Food Bank Collections

Urgent! Food Bank Collections

Food banks across the country are facing unprecedented demand, and finding it increasingly difficult to meet the needs of such large numbers.

They desperately need more in the way of food donations, and Carolyne Robinson was asked by the Hope Centre in Northampton if she could coordinate efforts here for them and for the food banks across the Northampton area with whom they are linked.  She has agreed to do so, beginning with a drop off point in Sibbertoft and will, hopefully, be able to arrange drop-off points in other parishes.  Some of our parishes have existing links with Jubilee Foodbank in Market Harborough and these will continue - they, too, have much greater need, so do think about donating to them.

 

There are collection boxes in the following locations:

Marston Trussell
Christine Otway 9 Main St directly opposite the church hall

Sibbertoft
Sue McCrae, 42 Welland Rise
St Helen’s Church porch
There will also be collection boxes out at the Saturday pop-up stalls.

Welford
Vicky Johnson, 15 Salford Close
St Mary The Virgin Church porch

 

Lets make sure no one has to worry about food during this crisis.

"I was hungry and thirsty" said Jesus "and you fed me"

"Lord, when did we feed you?" asked the disciples.

"When you fed anyone who was hungry," replied Jesus.
