Following the success of their August challenge, the foodbank are asking donors to ‘think big’. They have created a donation calendar enabling anyone wanting to participate to tick off an item a day that they want to donate through the month of October, resulting in a well varied box of donations at the end of the month. I think this is a wonderful idea and will certainly help them stock the shelves with items which may well be in higher demand in the coming colder months. You can also take a look at their Facebook page to keep up with any other special donation requests they may have as well as opening hours and foodbank locations.
The Foodbank has recently featured in the Plymouth Chronicle, a lovely piece detailing the Oasis Cafe and all the support and resources available through them and their volunteers at Manor Street, Stonehouse. Read the Plymouth Chronicle piece here.
