FOOD BANK CRISIS and the CORONA PANDEMIC

 

Margaret and I will be supporting the running of the church’s contributions to the Chiltern Food Bank while Heather Wickham self isolates. Sadly with the Church now being closed and the pressure on shops there appears to be no practical way to collect food stuffs as has been done in the past. This is placing those in the greatest need in a very serious position and we want to help to alleviate that need. 

 In discussion with the Clergy we have come up with the following idea made possible by Margaret’s position as a volunteer Fairtrader with Traidcraft and their ability to continue to supply non- perishable food stuffs to us which they have confirmed and can be seen on their website.

We propose that members of the church family and the wider community can, should they wish, make financial contributions to us which we will convert into goods and we will deliver weekly to the Foodbank. We will keep a running total of money received and goods purchased which we will publish via the Church website/weekly newsletter and our accounts will be available should anyone wish to see them.

Our Stock Sheet shows the range of products we hold in stock and from which we will draw goods for the Food Bank. We will decide the goods to supply in conjunction with the Food Bank to avoid duplication.

 

We will also continue to offer a delivery service to any of you who wish to purchase for your own needs as unfortunately we will be unable to run stalls for the foreseeable future.

Should you feel able to contribute or wish to purchase for you own use please

Because of the difficulty in making payments in person we would prefer that people use one of the following methods of contribution/payment.

 

By bank transfer - we will send you our bank details upon receipt of your order.

 

By cheque made payable to Traidcraft Plc and sent to
