Bags of Food
‘One-off’ help for families or individuals in crisis.
Growing out of our annual Christmas Hampers project, this Jubilee Church project is underway and will run throughout the year. Foods are donated by members and friends of the church and stored until a need arises.
The intention is to be able to offer a bag of food for an individual or family in an unexpected situation. It may be that this is a ‘one-off’ emergency, or providing food until food bank or other support can be arranged by other community partners or agencies.
Jubilee Church’s community partners may contact us to request a bag of food for one of their clients and a member of our team will get prepare the Bag of Food which can be delivered to a school, centre or direct to the family.
Donations of food items are welcome - there is a box in the foyer at the Jubilee Centre.
Foods generally needed are:
tea, squash, juice
meals in tins or jars (eg pies, stews, frankfurters)
tuna, tomato soup, baked beans, tinned spaghetti
vegetables (sweetcorn, peas, carrots, tomatoes)
rice, pasta, noodles
pasta bake and other sauces
desserts (eg tinned fruit, rice pudding, sponges, custard, jelly, Angel Delight)
cereals, cereal bars
*for the summer: multibags of crisps/snacks, individual cartons of fruit juice*
