KNIGHTON FOOD BANK IN PRESTEIGNE – Update
We are not currently using the Portakabin behind the Day Centre. However, we are still providing food and toiletries to the community of Presteigne and surrounding villages, from our Knighton food bank and will deliver either on a Tuesday or Friday. If you need food urgently, or wish to make a donation, please contact Helen on 07731 524 058.
As always we are very grateful for any donations you can give us. Please contact Helen before making your donation, to check our current needs.
Thank you for supporting our food bank during these very difficult times, when many of our friends in the community continue to face financial hardship and will be making heart-breaking choices about having food or keeping warm and well.
As a result of receiving generous, thoughtful and good quality donations of food and toiletries, plus amazing cash donations, we are fully stocked once more in our food bank stores in Knighton and Presteigne. Thank you to the churches, schools and Knighton Rainbows, for your beautiful Harvest Festival gifts.
We currently have a serious excess of beans, soup, pasta, rice, tea and cereals so we ask that you do not offer us any of these until Christmas. However, we do need:
Clean ‘bags for life’ – any taking up room in your cupboards or in the car?
Coming soon: tots2teens project – providing baby and toddler basics, as well as more food choices and hygiene products for teens and young adults. More news next time…
