Our Harvest 2023 appeal

11th September 2023

We are thankful for the many partner organisations who share our passion to create a poverty-free community. We are so grateful for all of the support we receive not just throughout the year, but especially at Harvest time.

We are hopeful, as in previous years, that we will see an abundance of donations to replenish our low stocks.

We have seen soaring demand for food bank help. Many are struggling due to the cost-of-living crisis and feel overwhelmed and hopeless about their situation. However, we believe that there is hope. With the right support, we know that people can be helped to improve their circumstances.

We have created three videos, please watch and share as appropriate. They can be found as below:

Video for Churches

Video for Secondary Schools

Video for Primary Schools

We also have a list of items we are in need of, which is below. Please ensure donations are well in date, do not contain any alcohol and are sealed. We can’t accept refrigerated or frozen items.

Finally, this time of year sees our warehouse and driving capacity at their busiest. Can you help us by delivering your harvest collection to us? Do let us know the date and approximate time you’re planning to come, so we can plan and ensure our teams are ready to help. Please contact us by email if you have no way of bringing your collection to us, and we will see if we can organise picking it up from you.

We are so grateful for your continued support. Do let us know if you have any questions.
