We are only just keeping up with the food parcels needed

We’d like to say a huge thank you to all the schools, churches, business and organisations who are doing a phenomenal job this harvest of stocking up the shelves of our foodbank. You’re all amazing!  If you can donate please drop off at either Gorleston Baptist or Salvation Army Mondays or Thursdays 9 – 12

We would urge people to keep donating. We have to work hard to keep the food coming in and it is a real challenge

We are especially in need of soups, tinned fruit custard, tinned veggies, tinned meats, packet meals. There are trollies at the local co ops and Sainsburys. Otherwise take to the main centres at Salvation Army Monday Thursday or Fridays mornings or Gorleston Baptist Church Mondays 9 – 12. Thank you so much.
