Thank you to all of you who contribute so generously to the food bank. It really does have a positive impact on our community. As you go into the auditorium today, shopping lists with bags are available on the table. We are now receiving supplies of fresh fruit and vegetables; and we have plenty of cans of baked beans so no more at the moment. If you know of any families who are in need of some support please let us know so we can make sure they are included. For questions or comment please phone Sharon Henderson (027 2445479) who is our new Food Pantry Co-ordinator.
