The Parish Council of Hockley Heath will be setting up a temporary food bank during the current Coronavirus crisis. The Parish Council will endeavour to provide an emergency food package to individuals/families struggling to cover the cost of food.
Whilst a number of items have been sourced by the Parish Council, and nappies and baby wipes have been donated, further donations of tinned or dried non-perishable foods, along with person hygiene items would be appreciated to top up supplies.
If you would like to donate any items please drop them off at the Pavilion on Sunday 29th March 2020 between 4-5pm. A social distancing policy will be in place and you can place food/toiletries on a table.
Suitable non-perishable long life items would be tinned meats and fish, tinned vegetables, pasta, rice, pulses, sauces, tinned and dried fruit, cereals, juices, tea, coffee, biscuits, baby food and toiletries.
The Pavilion will act as a donation and distribution centre but the food bank will be stored off site for security reasons. Further details will be communicated next week when the food bank is able to receive requests.
