There are many needy people in Penrith dependent on the town’s Food Bank. Please help by regularly donating non-perishables like: tinned soup, rice pudding, tinned meat/fish, tinned fruit, tinned tomatoes, sponge pudding ; UHT or powdered milk (not fresh); sugar; pasta sauces; fruit juice (cartons only); cereal; tea bags/instant coffee; rice/pasta; jam. Good shelf life essential.
We have received the suggestion from the Salvation Army who manage the Food Bank on behalf of all the churches in Penrith to say that there is a need for rice puddings and for tinned carrots in particular. Other goods are of course very welcome too. Thank you for your continuing support!
Please leave in the Food Bank box in the Narthex.
