Just recently my little car has been in service again, making deliveries and collecting donations to take into the food cupboard. So far it seems to be coping! I am pleased to say that I also have volunteers with more spacious cars who pick up the bigger loads for me and have done a fantastic job throughout the lockdown.
July started off being a very busy month in the food cupboard, following the pattern of lockdown but it has been a little quieter over the last couple of weeks. That has been a blessing as it has given us the opportunity to check through several of the cupboards rotating the stock. It has also given us time to really sort the extra stock that has been arriving over the last few months. Of course we have used a lot but donations have been incredibly generous.
Last month I included a list of the items that we currently need for our boxes, to help people who wish to donate. However, this month I can honestly say that there is nothing we need apart from coffee! The cupboards are all pretty full and we really need to use up what we have.
We have plenty of beans, soup, cereal, tea, pasta and rice and actually we cannot really store any more of these items. The fact that we are in such a healthy position is really thanks to all of you plus many local businesses, big and small, who have been supporting us. It has been amazing and I cannot thank you enough for everything that has been given.
I would also like to thank our temporary volunteers who came on board during lockdown when the regulars had to stay at home. They all did a fantastic job! Thank you to them all. The regular volunteers are now back and I am grateful to them too that they wanted to return.
A reminder for those of you who use social media the food cupboard has a Facebook page. Newsletters and other updates appear on this and it is used to let people know which food items are most needed. If you are facebook user please look for ‘W S Food Cupboard’ and if possible like and share so that it is seen as widely as possible.
Thank you all again for your support.
