ABOUT KNOTTINGLEY FOODBANK
Knottingley foodbank is a project founded by local churches and community groups, working together towards stopping hunger in our local area.
The Knottingley Foodbank is continuing to provide help to the local community and our Parish continues to make donations of food and other essential items.
Before COVID, parishioners could leave their gifts at St Michael’s Church when attending Mass or just visiting when the Church was open. This facility of course became unavailable when St Michael’s had to close due to the Virus. Donations have continued to be given however under the guidance of Mary McAteer and Barbara Winwood, to whom we are most grateful.
With the Church now open for Mass on Saturday, the facility for parishioners to leave their donations can return. A basket will be available in the entrance so that donations can be made when St Michael’s is open for Mass.
Generally, the sort of products needed are: Tinned Fruit, Tinned Meat, Sugar, Cordials, Sauce Packets, Pot Noodles and vegetables.
We are checking with the Foodbank to see what their current urgent needs are and will pass on that information through our Social Media Channels and the Parish website.
Donations can be brought to Ropewalk Methodist Church, WF11 9AL (warehouse is in the car-park) Thursday mornings 10:00-12:00 midday.
Please keep a social distance and wear a mask.
Current shortage items are: tinned fruit, custard, puddings and carrots.
