We Support the Food Bank

Posted by in Uncategorized on | , ,

POOLE FOOD BANK is struggling to meet the increased demand for food at this challenging time. Following recent discussions with the Food Bank, Routes to Roots has decided to donate to them all the money we would have spent on food for our drop-ins, if we had been able to remain open, over the last few weeks. At a time when we are unable to feed the hungry ourselves, we feel it is vital that we help our partner agencies, who are still able to get food to those in need, including many of our vulnerably housed clients. We welcome this opportunity to be able to give something back, to help the Food Bank feed those, who may only be a step away from being homeless themselves. 

Over the years, so many of you have helped us with your donations of food. During this crisis we ask that you help the Food Bank who would welcome tinned meat, potatoes, rice pudding and fruit, long grain rice, pasta sauce, coffee, UHT milk. 

Any donations can be dropped at the Food Bank, Longfleet URC, Longfleet Rd, (next to the petrol station), on weekdays, 9.30 am – 12 noon.
