Christmas Reverse Advent Calendar for Taunton Foodbank
This year we are suggesting a change to our usual popular Christmas Reverse Advent Calendar. The way this has worked is that you put IN to an Advent Calendar, instead of taking out, for the 24 days before Christmas. You do this by putting a tin of food into a cardboard box using a shopping list we publish. This year we are asking those who wish to donate to fill a jar with a coin a day instead. Whether it is1p or £1.00 or any amount in between doesn’t matter. The collection can then be dropped in to us at the warehouse (Unit 4, Belvedere Trading Estate, Taunton, TA1 1BH) or transferred via BACS. The reason we are suggesting it for this year, is that the logistics of collecting groceries at the moment and the uncertainties of our social situation means that with cash donations we can target specific needs as they arise.
Creator, make us co-workers with you,
that the earth and all who live upon it
may reap a full harvest.
Show us how to reflect your rhythms
in our life and work
and to conserve the world’s rich resources.
Help us to give all creatures their due respect,
to tend cattle and crops with care.
Guide science along wise and considerate ways,
that we may fashion agriculture that truly enhances,
and that we may sustain a vibrant environment.
