Storehouse Update

During March the number of food bags given out decreased from the exceptionally high number in January and February. A total of 140 bags were distributed in March, resulting from requests from 14 different agencies and 9 non-agency requests.   What a blessing that we can continue to care for those in need in our community by showing God’s love in this practical way.  
We are so grateful to those who volunteer to pack bags. We have a great team made up of people from West Suffolk Vineyard Church and those from other churches and individuals also. We want to say a big “thank you” to Rosie and Alison who have recently left the team to concentrate on other ministries within the Church. We also welcome Emma and Adrian to the team.
We also appreciate a team of people who we contact when supplies of food are getting really low. Their swift response means the food cupboards are topped up ready to be used to pack bags.  
At present the Storehouse cupboards are starting to look bare. We especially need the following items:

  •  Tinned Meat
  • Tinned vegetables
  •  Tinned potatoes
  •   Fish
  •  Soup
  •  Tinned desserts
  •  Biscuits/snacks
  •  Food for people with no cooking facilities

If you are able to help out in buying any of the above that would be very much appreciated. Thank you to all those who support the work of Storehouse, in any way.

God bless you,
Andrew & Mary Soman
