There continues to be a dire need for foodstuffs to assist our neighbors. As you know, our parish’ remit from the food bank is to contribute baby-food, but any other non-perishables will be accepted gladly. There is a cupboard for the collection of donations in the church hall.
A general meeting of the foodbank will be held on Tuesday, 29 April, 2014 at the Queenship of Mary Fellowship Hall. Dinner 6 – 7 pm. Business meeting at 7:00 p.m. As we move into our twenty-second year of existence, we encourage all people, volunteers, clients and those interested in what we are doing, to attend this meeting and slide presentation. If you want to know more about the foodbank, please plan to attend.
