Important information for all agencies, clients and supporters
Dear Great Yarmouth Food Bank supporter
We are immensely appreciative of all our supporters over a sustained period while food poverty continues to be a major problem. Your support in different ways has made a big difference, and continues to do so.
This letter is to let you know about some changes to the way food bank provision in Great Yarmouth and Gorleston is changing; not so much in substance, but in the structure of the organisation. From 30th June, Great Yarmouth Food Bank as an organisation will hand over operations to individual food banks, and provision will be made by the church food banks networking together; some of which will share in a referral voucher entitled: “Food Bank Referral Voucher for the Borough of Great Yarmouth”.
So, for example, Gorleston Baptist Church will continue to run a food bank as will St Mary Magdalene, The Salvation Army and several others. We will work together but be separate entities.
As the organisation “Great Yarmouth Food Bank” will be dissolved, financial donations can be made to individual food banks. Each food bank will then make sure it is used most effectively in the alleviation of food poverty and associated problems.
Thank you again, in anticipation of your ongoing support
