Encounter Hope Foundation received funding for new shelving for their relocated community food bank. The food bank distributes around 90 food parcels per fortnight in conjunction with community meals held at their new premises.
Food bank manager Brian Conquer said:
“We are finding that with the new shelving it is so much easier to see what is on the shelves and as they are deeper I am able to get more on each shelf. I am able to use the top shelves to more capacity than before. This means when I come to make up parcels I don’t spend as much time trying to find and get goods out of the shelves. We do appreciate the grant and how much it has helped us to help people in the Community.”
