Church of England Diocese of Gloucester Kemerton

Tewkesbury Foodbank

Our church is proud to have supported the Tewkesbury Foodbank from its early beginnings, knowing how well they have continued to meet the needs of local families who cannot buy sufficient food and necessities.

Over the years, we have maintained a collection point in our church for donated items, and individual members have either bought and delivered their own contributions, or used the supermarket collection points.  During the Covid lockdowns, church members have instead given financial support.

The Foodbank provides a monthly newsletter, and this is available for download below.

Their latest letter is about their regular Christmas Blessings project.  In past years they have provided parcels of Christmas specials for their clients.  Because of the Covid precautions, this year's distribution will be in vouchers, which need to be applied for.  This month's attachment describes the scheme and includes application details.  If you know anyone who would benefit from it, please guide them to this material.
