Can you help the Foodbank?

April 14, 2018

Lyme Regis Foodbank is run by volunteers to help individuals or families in our community who face a short-term 'food crisis': being without food or means to obtain food owing to temporary financial, medical or social support problems.

Starting on 9th May, it is open each Wednesday morning from 10.00am to 12noon.
The Foodbank relies on voluntary donations of suitable products from generous-minded people. Items such as those on this list are the staples of the Foodbank, so anything you can contribute, however little or much, is very welcome.

 

From Wednesday 25th April you can drop items into the collection boxes held at the following places:

  • Tesco Lyme Regis, Broad Street

  • Uplyme Post Office & Stores

  • Lyme Bay Medical Practice, Kent House

  • The Catholic Church of St. Michael and St. George, Silver Street

  • The Baptist Church, Broad Street

  • The Parish Church of St Michael the Archangel, Church Street

  • Uplyme Parish Church

  • St Michael's Primary School

  • Other drop-off points will be publicised over time

Those needing food should first contact one of the following agencies for a referral:

  • Lyme Regis Medical Centre

  • Lyme Bay Medical Practice, Kent House

  • Charmouth Medical Practice

  • Virgin Care Community Services

  • Citizens' Advice Bureau

  • Dorset Reach

  • Dorset Adult Social Services

  • The Catholic Church of St. Michael and St. George, Silver Street

  • Lyme Regis Baptist Church, Broad Street

  • The Parish Church of St Michael the Archangel, Church Street

  • Uplyme Parish Church

 

 

Other ways to help the Foodbank 

If you are unable to donate items, but would still like to help the Foodbank, you can do so by:

  • making a financial contribution, which we can use for buying products to fill gaps in our donated stock;

  • volunteering a bit of your time to join the team at the Foodbank on some Wednesday mornings, or by

  •  helping to collect from donation points, or by helping periodically with necessary administrative jobs (most of which can be done at home).

 

To offer any sort of help, please contact Heather Prior (01297-441224 / heather@lymeforward.co.uk) or Chris Boothroyd (01297-442237 / chris@caboothroyd.net).
