In January of this year we received a total of 34 food requests, while in February the total was 26. These figures included 22 requests for food for families, when we give away two bags at a time, so that in January and February we gave out over 80 carrier bags full of food and toiletries to people in need around Bury St Edmunds and West Suffolk. So far this year, requests have come in from 11 different agencies, as well as other non-agency requests. We can only keep providing in this way with the kind support and food donations we receive, which come mainly through people at West Suffolk Vineyard Church, but also from other organisations with whom we have links. These include West Suffolk College (see posting below), West Road Church, and, in the past, various local schools and churches as part of their harvest thanksgiving. Thank you.
