What is Feed?
Over seven years ago, in an attempt to live out Jesus' simple command to love our neighbour, we began to gather food and essential items to give away to whoever was in need in the local community. Today, FEED has become one of the county's largest food banks, giving out on average 90 bags of food a week. FEED couldn't happen without the generous spirit of support from local individuals, charities & businesses alike.
HOW CAN I RECEIVE A BAG OF FOOD & ESSENTIALS?
Just come along to the church on Mondays between 10am and 12pm noon. We'll be running a cafe where we'll be happy to serve you a free coffee and breakfast. If you can't make a Monday morning or have just missed one then contact Carol.
FEED has forged a new partnership with a UK charity to create the MAKE LUNCH KITCHEN! Families whose children benefit from free school meals can experience real difficulty in providing healthy lunches during the holidays. MAKE LUNCH KITCHEN will provide local children full and fresh meals during the school holidays, plus a lite bite for parents.
HOW CAN I Help?
There are lots of ways you can help. You can drop off food donations at the church (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm & Sun 9am-1pm) - just download a shopping list to find out what we need. You can give regularly to the Feed Fund which will help us maintain our resources and meet any deficit in the ever growing need. Or perhaps you're able to give a couple of hours one day to help collect donations from generous shoppers at a local supermarkets. Lots of schools support us by making their own collections - so much so that it's become somewhat of a competition to collect the most items each year! Perhaps you'd like to set up a corporate collection in your work place. You are also welcome to join the growing volunteer team who run FEED on a Monday morning. Find out more about any of these avenues by dropping FEED a line.
