Caresco foodbank needs donations to help those in need

Caresco run a foodbank in Sawtry and rely on goodwill and local donations to keep things going.

They need donations of basic foods to create food parcels for local people. Demand since the beginning of the crisis has increased substantially and they are now preparing and delivering some thirty parcels a week to families and individuals in need. They expect demand to increase further.

There is a food donation box near the counter in Jed and Aruna’s Gidding Stores and items left in this box will be collected and taken to Sawtry each week by Maggi Stewart from Winwick.
