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.
** The Salvation army who take in, store and distribute the Penrith Foodbank donations have mentioned that they are particularly short of UHT milk, tinned meat (corned beef, Spam, chicken) tinned custard, tinned rice, tea, coffee, jam and tinned fruit. Help with these items would be much appreciated. At present the foodbank is supporting 17 people including 7 children. **
Please leave in the Food Bank box in the Narthex.
