Updating into 2018

There has been a pause in posts for a while, but foodbank4whitby has been on the go all the time.

Last year (2017) was a year in which, broadly speaking, what food items came in balanced the food parcels going out with. People keep giving and that is greatly appreciated by us and particularly those who receive the parcels.

We had a bumper “harvest” from the schools and churches which filled the larder leading into the Christmas period. Christmas was as ever a busy time, before and indeed after. Three turkey crowns from Radfords arrived post Christmas and what better could one do with them than to pass to the Sisters at Sneaton Castle to rustle up some pies for the F4W freezer.

We sometimes get fresh produce in reasonable amounts which sometimes needs to be put to use at short notice. If you run a lunch club for older people, please do let us know when you meet and what you can use. We cannot regularly provide, but if we know what is going on we can try to supply something time to time.

Shortly, we will put some statistics and graphs in a Post to illustrate quantitatively how we are performing on behalf of others.

  1. Hi,
    I am in a situation where I have found I have time to give. I had to give up work, and ended up on benefits.
    Not a situation I would have wanted, but it is what it is.
    I struggle with the most basics and in need of food parcels myself!!
    I would like to offer my time, my heart and my help. I have done a lot of voluntary work over the years, without ever wanting or expecting anything back. But, now i find myself in a situation where I’m simply struggling with the most basics. Now that I understand what it is to be on the breadline, I would like to help others now, and hopefully be helped too. It’s the first time I have ever asked for some help too.
    Please let me know if I can do anything. I am not one for being ‘out there’ at all, I just don’t mind packing boxes or something.
