St Paul’s church Worcester helping the city step by step.
As you will no doubt be aware if you ever watch the national news, there is a rapidly growing need to help people with food parcels on a national and local scale. Over the recent years St Paul’s church Worcester, has given out many food parcels via social workers and children’s services. Now how ever, we help Worcester Foodbank and collect food for them to issue out.
How can we help you ask?
A box for us to collect food donations will be available every Sunday. A social worker that collected a parcel said ‘you are such a lifeline to these people’. What we do, not only incredibly blesses the families to whom the parcels go, but is also a great testimony of care to the professionals who request and deliver them. Please see the list below for guidance as to the type of food we put into our food parcels.
By simply looking out for those 2 for 1 offers (keep one, give one away) etc we could help Worcester Foodbank, feed very needy families for very little extra expense to us as individuals.
If you would prefer to give finance this will also be fantastic as we always buy fresh produce to go in our parcels. Almost all the families we give to have young children and fresh food is highly valued.
If you would like to help us at St Paul’s church Worcester by giving a small monetary gift towards fresh veg, meat and other perishables or even to keep the store cupboard stocked up with goods then please click on the charity checkout logo below which will take you directly to the St Paul’s Worcester donation page for this project.
This project is on going and the box for food gifts/donations will be available whenever the church is open. Would be great to see God’s love in action overflowing from this box every week!
