Our food parcels are made up of specific food groups so that those in need have enough food for at least nine meals. The list above shows what we are in need of as we currently have good stocks of pasta, pasta sauce, biscuits, rice, fish, soup, tinned meat, beans, baby food and cereals.
We also ask for small packs of food as larger packs do not fit in our parcels, making it difficult for our clients to carry home.
Thank you
