This is what we in the dales call our food bank . It is called this so folks can (usually ) access it anonymously and independently from our open churches.
Obviously at the moment things are different as church buildings are closed, but 'church' is still very much in action and open pantry is operating ... infact even more so. The food is now being stored at a cool temperature and hygienically in the vicarage garage.
We are delivering .. (with our volunteer badge ... Thank you Julie Greenslade @ Good life Project sanitising and social distancing ...) to families with very young and/ or many children who are finding it difficult to get shopping .. Also to elderly and vulnerable.
If you would welcome food and can’t get it for any reason please call us on 667553 or private message me on here and a bag of selected packet / tinned groceries will be dropped off for you on your doorstep.
These are different times so a different sort of 'in need' has arrived. Also if you know of anyone that might benefit please let us know. There is also a collection point box at the bottom of the vicarage drive if anyone is able to donate anything as you go past on your daily walk. To those who have already donated thank you so so much . 15 families have already benefited and I’m sure more will.
Let’s all work together in this ... communication is key so please keep us informed .
Thank you so much.
