The warehouse in Taunton is now the only centre in use. Food is being packed there for delivery by South West & Taunton Council. In February 186 parcels feeding 412 people were given out. In March this rose to 340 parcels and 899 people fed. We are still receiving donations of food. The website shows items needed in particular but this usually includes the following …
- tins of cold meat- corned beef, ham etc
- packets of instant noodles
- tins of carrots
- instant mash
- jam and tomato or brown sauce
We have been encouraged by this support as well as financial gifts which can be made payable to Taunton Foodbank and sent to Taunton Foodbank, Unit 4, Belvedere Trading Estate, Taunton, TA1 IBJ. There is now a new advice line operated by Citizens Advice and linked to the Foodbank. We hope this will help in ensuring that anyone without enough money to buy food can be helped. We continue to be grateful for the generosity and understanding of the people in this area.
