Volunteers from church-sponsored Wimborne Food Bank will be at Waitrose supermarket in Wimborne on Saturday 31st May, to collect food for local people in food crisis, referred to them by support workers from voluntary or statutory agencies.

A spokesman from the food bank said: “We have seen numbers increasing recently and are very grateful to those individuals and organisations who give generously week by week, so that we can then give out emergency parcels containing three days food supply and basic toiletries.”

This year, up until 9th May, the food bank has fed 165 adults and 120 children.

If you would like to make a donation then come to Waitrose on 31st May, between 10-3.30pm, and purchase items from their shopping list to put into their collection trolley. Food bank volunteers will be happy to answer questions, or you can visit www.wimbornefoodbank.org.uk for the latest information and our official shopping list. Details of how to donate money are on the website. The spokesman added: “We would like to thank the partners at Waitrose for their support in making this opportunity available.”
