We are so grateful to supporters who have supplied us with surplus fruit and vegetables from their gardens and allotments this autumn. Thank you!
We also give thanks to those schools and churches who have made the Food Bank the beneficiary of their Harvest Festivals. It has been really good to see our shelves full as we approach the colder weather, and these thoughtful gifts make a real difference to our ability to provide fresh, nutritious food to those who need it.
Christmas is Coming!
Supporters often ask what they can offer to support us at Christmas, and this is so kind. We try to give each client a bag of Festive treats, and a list of what we’d like to include this year appears on our Donations page.
But our shelves are often thinly stocked in January, so it’s always good to receive basic items as well, so that we’re ready to face the New Year.
The Food Bank has had a really busy and interesting 2023. We’ve moved premises, we’re operating differently, we have lots of new volunteers and lots of new clients and we’ve operating more closely with our Coquetdale Hub – it’s been quite a year! We couldn’t do any of this without the incredible support of the Alnwick community – individuals, companies, supermarkets, clubs and our suppliers – thank you, one and all.
And a final huge THANK YOU to over 50 volunteers who collect, stock, drive and support the Food Bank in so many different ways. They’re a smashing bunch, and we couldn’t do what we do without them.
