Since September 2020 our Store Cupboard has remained open daily Monday to Friday 9 -11am for essential groceries, although since the first lockdown we have had to change some of our activities. We continued to have donations of fresh food available on Tuesday mornings.
We regularly promote this support to those known to us including our CAP clients, MOAT course clients and the Wednesday After School families. This continues to provide some relief for those in greatest need during the ongoing pandemic.
We are very grateful…
… for food donations from customers, which we collect weekly from our local Sainsbury’s store. We are also part of the FareShare (Tesco) and Neighbourly (Lidl) food donations schemes. In addition to this we delivered groceries on Fridays to a number of individuals and families in need as well as meals.
The Centre is closing for most of the summer break to enable deep cleaning and maintenance to be carried out. Anyone in food poverty from the local area will still be able to access support from Wimborne food bank during the school holidays.
Please see our variety of news items and photos of food provision during the pandemic – including some of our wonderful volunteers!
