Foodbank Updates

Supporting Newark Foodbank

Dear All
Thank you for your faithful prayer support. The Foodbank and Social Supermarket have been extremely busy recently, in December alone donations totalled 6.59 tonnes. An extraordinary amount during a cost of living crisis.

Thanks to God and the generous people of Newark and district we were able to give out selection boxes and other Christmas goodies to those who would have nothing extra for Christmas.
We`ve been able to give out food and other items to people who have been flooded out of their homes and have lost most of their stuff. Recently we have had more referrals for elderly people, a sad situation at this stage in their lives.

Please pray for everyone who needs to use the Foodbank and the Market. Pray please also for all those who give their time to volunteering at the Foodbank and Market – for the collectors, those who weigh and shelve the goods, pack the bags, deliver to those unable to come into town, those helping people select their goods. 

Finally, Tom, from Citizen`s Advice Bureau, helps many get to
grips with maximizing their income. The work of the Foodbank and Social Supermarket is growing year by year and we do so need your prayers. Pray that the helpers and the clients sense God`s love, peace, and presence in their lives- those who give and those who receive.

Thank you again, we value you – and pray for you that 2024 will be a year of peace, joy, and good health for you and your families.

Items can be donated at the following places – Co-op, One Stop, Well Pharmacy and various churches.
