Foodbank

Emergency food for local people in crisis:

Today in Swansea there are families struggling to put food on the table. For people on low incomes, a sudden crisis – redundancy, benefit delay or even an unexpected bill can mean going hungry. Every day parents skip meals to feed their children and people are forced to choose between paying rent and eating. As a ministry area initiative, here at All Souls we are setting up a deposit point for non-perishable food, which will be donated to the Swansea foodbank. Swansea foodbank is part of The Trussell Trust’s UK-wide foodbank network, a charity founded on Christian principles that works with people regardless of religious belief or non-belief. More details can be found at www.trusseltrust.org/foodbank-projects, All we ask is, when you go shopping, add one or more of the items on the list to be found at the back of the Church to your trolley, bring them with you next time you come to Church, and in this is a small way we can all make a difference.

‘For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,’ Matthew 25:35
