FoodAWARE supporting All Saints FoodbankAnother busy week starting with our continuous support to All Saints Foodbank helping vulnerable people across Woodlands, Highfields, Adwick Carcroft and Skellow.

All Saints Foodbank is in need of any donations of non-perishable food items, and toiletries – including nappies, wipes, sanitary products and soap. All items must be within the sell-by or use-by dates.

You can contact All Saints Foodbank by messaging them on their Facebook page – All Saints Foodbank.

All Saints Foodbank are a “referral only” food bank and you will need to be referred to them by DMBC. The contact number for Doncaster Community Hub is 01302 430300.

We continued our support for Caring for Kendray with another donation.

We have had slightly quieter sessions last two Fridays with 20 food parcels given out across the local area (mostly home delivered in Mexborough, Denaby, Conisbrough & Swinton) last Fri 14th & 22 distributed on Fri 7th Aug.

As a reminder –

We CANNOT accept ‘self-referrals’ (which was introduced as a special measure at the start of lockdown) & referrals MUST come via our approved community partners
