Haverhill Foodbank

 

 

Haverhill Foodbank was officially launched in October 2008 in partnership with The Trussell Trust and Haverhill and District Churches Together (HDCT) and provides a safety net for unexpected crisis.

It only takes a change in circumstances; for example, loss of job, benefit cut or benefits delay and families already struggling to make ends meet either have to borrow money for food, or go without.

We are looking to help bridge the gap with food for a family or individual for at least 3 days (or until other agencies or services becomes available). We work closely with other agencies, i.e. family support workers, health visitors and Social Services.

For more information about the Haervhill Foodbank and other projects go to the Web Page on http://www.reachhaverhill.org.uk/ or telephone on 01404 268003 or by email info@reachhaverhill.org.uk

Once again we have no specific shortages, but please continue to donate, especially Christmas items.

We are still in need of pillows, single duvets & covers.

However, we are preparing for a 2 day food collection at Tesco in Haverhill (Friday 29th & Saturday 30th November). Last collection there brought in 1.9 tonne!

If anyone would like to be part of this we could really do with your help, even just a couple of hours of your time will make a difference. Basically we will be on duty in the foyer of Tesco and accepting customer's donations, between 9am and 5pm each day. If anyone would like to volunteer, please email me on Ann@reach-cp.org.

We are making up Christmas hampers again - we already have a large number of Christmas puddings from last year but we really need biscuits, children's chocolates and other Christmassy items. On Starterpacks - we are still short of single duvets, single duvet covers, pillows, pots & pans and basic kettles.

Thank you,

Ann
