Thank you for all your support.
Every week Emergency Food Parcels are being supplied to families who are in serious and sudden hardship and there is a continued increase in need this year.
We always need tins of meat, coffee, tins of fruit, rice pudding,packets of dried milk and sugar, toothpaste, shampoo and other essentials
HEREFORD FOOD BANK UPDATE:
Spring may be slow but turnover of Emergency Food Parcels has been going apace at the Hereford Food Bank. Numbers for the first seven weeks of 2014 are up 50% on last year.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the wonderful outpouring of provisions and money over Christmas, as a result of which we were able to supply many families with food and treats who would otherwise have gone without.
Our stock levels are also up on this time last year so we are well set to continue with this work.
