Our financial year ends on 30th June and we have distributed 2651 food parcels. If you add on the totals from lockdown 1 we have distributed 3678 food parcels since the pandemic began. By the time restrictions are lifted we will have distributed approximately 3,800 food parcels in Alnwick and the surrounding areas. In monetary terms that is over £95,000 worth of food.
Every single item has come from either food or cash donations and all the staff at the food bank are unpaid volunteers.
It has been, and is, a tremendous effort and shows the strength of community spirit within Alnwick.
It is not over, demand remains high, just over 400% pre Covid levels so PLEASE continue to dig deep.
Thank you from all at the ADFB.
