Food Bank running short of food
Beverley Food bank, which is currently feeding up to 70 people each week, is running short of supplies and appealing for help from the public. Based at 87 Mill Lane and with another centre at Toll Gavel United Church, the Food Bank partners with a wide range of care professionals such as doctors, health visitors, social workers and police to identify people in crisis and issue them with a foodbank voucher, which can then be exchanged for emergency food supplies – enough for at least three days.
Those in need can also make contact at the Mill Lane and Toll Gavel centres – Mill Lane is open from noon to 4pm every Monday and Friday and Toll Gavel from 2 to 4pm every Wednesday. Donations of non-perishable packaged or tinned foodstuffs can also be donated at these times or left at three permanent collection points in the town – at Tesco’s main supermarket, at M & Co in the town centre and at the Dyer Lane barbers. The food bank was established in 2013 and receives regular donations from businesses and individuals but demand has been such lately, that stock has reached a dangerously low level.
