Harvest Appeal

4th September 2019

Harvest is traditionally a time of celebrating the crops being gathered in to provide food for the local community. This harvest, we are asking you to help feed and support local people in crisis by collecting specific non-perishable food and other items for Cromer and District Foodbank.  Local care professionals refer clients to the Foodbank who provide short term emergency food to these local people in crisis.  Food is given as an intervention strategy which allows the care agencies time to put longer term measures in place. Every food parcel given out really makes a difference.

All food given out by the Foodbank is donated by generous members of the public and Cromer and District Foodbank would love you to be involved in helping people in need.

For this appeal we would be delighted to receive any of the following items:

 Pasta/Rice and Pasta sauce

Tinned tomatoes

Tinned rice pudding

Tinned vegetables

Tinned meat

Vegetarian options

Sponge puddings and Custard

Squash and long life fruit juice

Cuppa soup

Savoury snacks – the just add hot water varieties

UHT Milk – Semi skimmed and full fat

Jam

Children’s sweets and chocolate


Food is essential but only part of the picture. Families in crisis have needs we might take for granted.  Below is a list of some of the items they ideally need, although any in-date non-perishable item would be appreciated and used:

 Toilet rolls

Shower gel and Shampoo

Deodorant

Washing liquid/powder – non bio

 Cromer and District Foodbank want to help feed and support local people in need. Please join with us by giving, so that those less fortunate don’t go without at Harvest time. Thank you!
