Don't miss our coming events:
Food Banks take a wide range of food items and a typical parcel will include cereal, soup, pasta, rice, pasta sauce, beans, tinned meat, tinned veg, tea and coffee, tinned fruit and biscuits. Please do not bring huge packs of rice or pasta 1Kg + as we cannot give them out. Please do not provide food with alcohol as again they cannot be given out eg Mince Pies with brandy! We do encourage you to think about treats such as chocolate or advent calendars as we move towards Christmas.
Food Banks have worked with nutritionists to develop a food parcel that contains sufficient nutrition for adults and children, for at least three days of healthy, balanced meals for individuals and families.
On top of that they also take in a variety of non-food items, such as toiletries and hygiene products, including;
Toiletries – deodorant, toilet paper, shower gel, shaving gel, shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, tooth paste, hand wipes
Household items – laundry liquid detergent, laundry powder, washing up liquid
Feminine products – sanitary towels and tampons
Baby supplies – nappies, baby wipes and baby food.
ST Cuthberts is a donation Church and we regularly take donations to food bank every sunday evening.
