Over the last four months Belvoir Parish have continued to gather food items in support of The Larder. All through the Covid-19 pandemic parishioners and friends have donated food into the front porch or into the brown bin collection points at church. Over this time we have not delivered our stocks down to The Larder team due to the great stock of food that was already being donated to them and in an effort to minimise risk of virus spread to volunteers.
Now that their stocks have gone down while our stock has grown and with the relaxing of restrictions I felt it would be a good time to organise and arrange to start moving our stock down to them and the Larder team are very happy for us to do that over the next week.
Counting up the bags we have packed adding what we will retain and making a very rough calculation I estimate our contribution will feed between 20 and 25 families for a week. That’s truly amazing and a blessing for so many who are in difficult times. Thank you.
As you can imagine the church is not quite as you will remember Pre-Covid 19. You may think it is quiet
and empty but I’ve attached a few pictures to let you see what’s been going on with our food support programs. God bless and please do continue to donate food.
The Larder Foodbank collections:
You can leave Food Donation to Belvoir Parish Church (opposite Newtownbreda Tesco) and we will deliver all donations to St Christopher’s Church.
Food Donations can be dropped anytime in the brown bin outside church.
