Leeds North and West Foodbank have issued a “we need your help” plea as supplies of some food items needed to complete food parcels run critically low, writes Keely Bannister.
The charity desperately needs more pasta sauce, tinned fish, long-life fruit juice, tinned tomatoes, tinned fruit and tea & coffees.
With a typical food parcel containing breakfast cereal, soup, pasta, rice, pasta sauce, tinned beans, meat, vegetables and fruit, as well as either tea or coffee, sugar, biscuits and snacks, it’s clear to see how vital the items in low stock are to delivery of food to service users.
A full list of donation locations can be found on the foodbank’s website, with destinations including: Tesco in Bramley Shopping Centre, Asda at Pudsey Owlcotes, Morrish Solicitors in Pudsey’s Lowtown, The Mill Kitchen on Farsley’s Town Street and at Pudsey Parish Church on Church Lane.
Volunteers from the charity are also present and accepting donations at Leeds Rhino and Leeds United games.
Registration is open for the Yorkshire Three Peaks sponsored walk that the charity is holding to raise funds.
Being held on Saturday 14th September, the walk is 24 miles and will see participants tackle the largest three peaks in Yorkshire – Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, with entry costing £25.
