In its sixth year of operation, Bridgnorth Food Bank was able to support locals in need to the tune of over 30,000 items though the generous contributions of both individual donors and local organizations.
At the time of the count, in November, a total of 26,252 items had been donated and an impressive 30,115 items distributed. The fact that a record 250 people were helped by the food bank in 2019 exemplifies a generous spirit of which organisers say residents of Bridgnorth can be proud.
A statement from the Food Bank Committee, thanking benefactors, read: “Without your generosity and support, day to day life for the families, couples and individuals that we help would have been extremely difficult and we would not have been able to meet the needs of those in our area.”
Donations can be made at Sainsbury’s, the Co-Op in Low Town and 7 West Castle St (all in Bridgnorth). Collections are also made at churches around the local area.
