CHICHESTER FOODBANK – URGENT
Below is an extract from the latest Foodbank newsletter:
- We have fed over 4.800 since last April in emergency parcels alone.
- We also gave out 1,719 lunch packs to children who receive free school meals due to low income.
- This means that since April 2020, we gave out about 83 tonnes of food.
The Foodbank is now preparing school lunch packs for the forthcoming Easter holidays and there is an urgent need for supplies.
There is an ongoing collection in Sayas News in West Wittering village where people have generously been donating either items of food or money, which is used to buy the current requirements at wholesale prices. The photograph below shows the latest consignment delivered to the Foodbank from Sayas last week.
It is a remarkable response, but the need continues to grow, so please give whatever you can to supply local people in need of help.
