Please find attached the poster of the warehouse needs for December. As you may notice, the only change from November's list is that we are not in need of tinned fruit at the moment, thank you. However, we would be grateful for any strong carrier bags you may have to spare, please.

With very many thanks for your continuing support and every best wish to you all for a peaceful Christmas season.

Until we are able to return to our usual food collections, many people are asking how they can give financially to enable the Somer Valley Foodbank to purchase items which are desperately needed. If you receive any such enquiries, please direct people to the giving page of our website :  


Thank you all for continuing to support the foodbank as we seek to help the most needy in our community at this very testing time.

With every best wish,
