West Somerset Food Cupboard

Newsletter - March 2021

Food parcels since the project began in 2007 - 15,870
Food parcels so far this year - 350

Dear Friends

Firstly my apologies that this letter is a little late in coming out.  Many thanks to all of you who have donated goods to us over the last month, and in particular for all the Easter eggs and chocolates which we have received and which have really made a difference to our recipients over the holiday period.

At the start of the month we were still in full lockdown but on the 8th March schools  reopened and soon after that we saw a significant drop in demand for boxes. We have returned to the level of demand that we had before the first lockdown began and, even if that is temporary, it is encouraging.

In the last newsletter I explained that we did not currently need financial donations and that is still the case. We are receiving many donations each week so that I have had to do very little top up shopping. Thank you for all that you are doing. Currently we have an abundance of the following:
Tinned hot meats and pies
Tinned fruit
Cereal
Biscuits
Rice
Tinned fish
Soup
Please avoid the above items if you are considering donations as we need to use the supplies we already have.
We do need the following:
Tinned potatoes
Tinned carrots
Fruit juice
Savoury biscuits
Pasta sauce
Jam or similar spreads 

Thank you all again for your support.

Ann Gibbs
Co-ordinator
