Assorted food

April 2019 Food Bin

Sandgate Parish Council are delighted to support the work of the Folkestone Rainbow Centre by hosting a Food Bin at Sandgate Library.

Any items that the Sandgate community collect will be received by the Rainbow Centre team at their warehouse prior to being sent out to their Distribution Centres, Foodstop and the Winter Shelter.

The Rainbow Centre say ” the increase in the number of people coming to the foodbank distribution centres has been far greater than expected. Since 1 January to 15 March, we redeemed 287 foodbank vouchers, which has fed 600 individuals (a dramatic increase from the same period in 2018 – 91 vouchers redeemed, 357 individuals fed).”

Help feed local people in crisis. Items we would especially appreciate this month are:

  • Long life milk
  • Coffee
  • Tinned Meat
  • Tinned Fish

Please ensure all food is well within date and unopened as we are not allowed to distribute out of date food. You can drop donations to the red food bin at Sandgate Library during library opening hours. Thank you!
