    Story

    HEAT OR EAT

    We will all have heard 'Heat or Eat', an absolutely terrible situation to be in I think you will agree. Because of it, we know the need for Amble Food Bank will be increasing. Our Volunteers are deeply concerned about being able to continue supporting those in need in the coming months. We have already had an increase in service users due to the end of the £20 Universal Credit Uplift and currently support between 100 and 120 families and individuals, each of these receiving a food parcel once every 2 weeks.

    We know this situation isn't going away any time soon. The lfirst time we set up a Just Giving Page (at the start of the first lock down) our Community was extremely generous. We hope this time you will help us have the confidence to be able to continue supporting those in need for as long as we possibly can.

    The people we support are referred to us by Northumberland Communities Together, Doctors, District Nurses, Health Workers, Social Workers, Schools and CAB.

    We are very grateful for the help we get from the customers of The Co-op and Morrisons, also other businesses in Amble who support us and therefore our Community, in various ways.

      How kind! We are now at 60% of our target to raise £2,000. The funds go towards buying groceries so we have enough to give emergency food parcels to those who can't afford to buy food for themselves and their children. As much as we wholeheartedly appreciate every food donation we get there is never enough to keep our shelves stocked, so we say a huge THANK YOU to the many who support us through this page.❤❤❤

      It seems the cost of living is really starting to bite. We are receiving new referrals each week which is hardly surprising but also the cost of running our food bank is increasing too. Groceries not donated through our usual channels must be bought through our fundraising pot. I would like to thank everyone who has donated already and ask anyone who may possibly have a few spare pounds to consider Amble Food Bank in their charity giving. Thank you.

      We know that the cost of living is spiralling - not only the cost of gas and electricity but of petrol too. The cost of getting to work will be hitting many households very hard. It is also hitting our foodbank too. We travel many miles delivering and collecting food. Your generous donations will help us make sure we can continue to volunteer our time to support those in need. Thank you xx
