Food bank

This is an extract from an email re the Foodbank

Can you let your members know of the following shortages for the Foodbank. They can receive gifts on Fridays as Southfield Church between 11am and 2.30pm but ideally to give time for packaging between 11am and 12pm.

Alternatively they can be delivered between Monday and Thursday to 65 High St between 9am and 12pm. This will then be delivered to Southfield on Friday morning.

 Below are some staggering details!

92 bags given out yesterday so 172 in two weeks. There is a definite need for tinned food. All that was left of the following after the last session as follows

 4 tins Rice Pudding

1 tin Fruit

12 tins Baked Beans

 Generally as well.  Low on tinned tomatoes/tomato based sauces, cereals and soups.

 Any donations made at supermarkets go to the Clevedon Foodbank which is now not able to supply surplus to Nailsea as they are using it all.  PLEASE consider adding stuff for the Foodbank to your shopping and dropping it off at 65 High Street. If others are doing the shopping for you then please ask them to add just a few items to your list if at all possible as food is desperately needed. We will replenish the £500 of vouchers from Tesco's we have donated when they run out too.


A great idea with the kids! Every time you wish you could go somewhere, do something or see someone put the idea into a jar and save it as a bucket list for when this is all over!
