During the weekend of March 14th and 15th, Tarvin churches will be launching Foodbank Collection in Tarvin.
There will be four collection points in the village: in St Andrew's Church, in the Methodist Church, in the Post Office and in The Co-op.
The Foodbank network was started by The Trussell Trust in 1997 and there are now 425 Foodbanks in communities across the U.K. , the number of people going to Foodbanks is so great that they are now said to be the fourth emergency service.
In our area, the West Cheshire Foodbank provides individuals and families in crisis with three days of nutritionally balanced emergency food. They work with local care professionals who can refer people to them by issuing a voucher.
In order to do this, they rely on generous donations of food, time and money from the public. You can help by buying items from the list below and putting them into the boxes at one of our four collection points in Tarvin.
Suitable Food Items
Fruit Juice (carton)
Sponge Pudding (tinned)
Rice Pudding (tinned)
Tea Bags/Instant Coffee
Instant Mashed Potato
Biscuits or Snack Bars
