Shopping list – Items our shelves are short of..
If you would like to donate food to us, this is what we would like.
Food can usually be brought to the Congregational Church office on weekday mornings, there is also a collection point in the Co-op near the tills, the Nationwide Building Society, Sainsbury’s Supermarket and monthly at Waitrose. Some local churches also have collection points.
Because we had the most fantastic harvest we have ever known all our shelves are full, all three store rooms are full to the brim.
The only items that we didn’t receive were
UHT Semi Skinned Milk
Small jars of coffee ( we ask for small jars as we aren’t sure that clients enjoy coffee)
Cartons of Fruit Juice
Packets of Mashed Potato
If you have something else you wish to give, please contact us first as we may not be able to use it and it is very time-consuming to dispose of items that we cannot use. Thank you for your co-operation.
But please note, we definitely cannot use:
Bread or short date cake
No Beer or Wine or fruit in alcohol
Anything that needs a fridge
Anything home-made (including jam or pickle)
Anything that is out of date or damaged
(Please check the date on the base of tins)
Any Dried lentils and beans
