Update from the Foodbank
Over the last 10 years Blandford Foodbank has achieved so much and we are so grateful for the ongoing practical and prayerful support from the local churches. Last year we fed nearly 1800 adults and children in the DT11 area and the demand is increasing reflecting the impact of the cost of living.
We have been looking at ways to serve and support the community most effectively and this summer we will be opening a community larder alongside the Foodbank, where people on low income and other income related benefits will be able to access food for a small weekly cost.
One of the major needs of the Foodbank are donations of food or financial donations. The items we are most in need of are coffee, fruit juice, tinned fruit and tinned vegetables. Alternatively or if you are interested in making a financial donation please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us on 01258 456093 for more information. Any food can be dropped at the Parish Centre, the URC (Tuesday and Thursday), and Morrisons and there are collection baskets at Lidl and Tesco. Also, if you have some spare time and you would like to volunteer with us please do get in touch.
