Harvest Festival 2017
Thank you, everyone, for your amazing support with Harvest Festival donations.
This year, St Petrock’s and Exeter Foodbank are sending this joint flyer to help coordinate resources and ensure that your harvest gifts reach local people where they are most needed.
Please use the lists of ‘needed items’ for each charity given below to gauge how you can best support them this harvest. Every item will be used to support a local person in need – and will be greatly appreciated!
Exeter Foodbank provides emergency parcels of non-perishable food to local people in crisis via a voucher-referral scheme.
In 2016/17, we supplied 3 days’ worth of food to 5,178 people from a wide range of backgrounds (of whom 1,615 were children).
UHT/Longlife Milk—1L, semi-skimmed
Tinned rice pudding
Longlife fruit juice—1L
Jams & spreads
Squashes & cordials
Please contact Mark Richardson, Foodbank Manager on 07818 226524 / firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a talk about the work of the Foodbank, or to arrange a collection.
