There are currently 2 Food Banks operating in Sheffield (Burngreave and S6), with a third one being set up, and following the Dioscesan ‘Salt and Light‘ away day we have been encouraged to support one of these rather than setting up our own. Food Banks aim to provide food for individuals or families for up to 3 days.
Jennifer Hurrell has provided a collection box for the back of church and will take donations down to the S6 Food Bank at Philadelphia Campus every week.
The list of foodstuffs for the box has been placed in the blue sheet and members of St Mark’s are encouraged to bring a donation when they come to meetings as well as services.
This will not replace our support of the Soup Run with tins of soup etc.
