    ChristmasThe Foodbank will be closed over Christmas and New Year from Tuesday 17th December to Tuesday 7th January.  For any agencies who are open between those dates and who require food parcels please let us know before 10th December how many bags you require and we will arrange them to be available for collection from the Silklife Centre before we close for the holiday.  Many thanks!

    Appeal for some ‘Smaller Items’

    by  • November 1, 2013 • Donations, Silklife Foodbank

    Small Packs for Single BagsWe are always so grateful for the donations we receive and people are becoming increasingly generous, sometimes giving great big packs of certain foods.  This is great for our family bags but we have an increasing number of single people who need smaller items in order to ensure we can give them a full range of food and still fit it in one bag. In particular we need small packets of cereal, cartons of milk, packs of tea, packets of instant rice/noodles/pasta/mash.  This would really help to to ensure we provide well balanced foodbags with a variety of food.  Thank you so much!
