Bletchley Lions Club has donated £383 to St Mary’s Church Food Cupboard, which will help to buy fresh food to local people in need.
The food is donated by the church to people across the MK postcode area, in response to requests received by Milton Keynes Children’s Social Services.
Food is delivered directly to the door of every recipient family, with no cost to themselves. The service is provided through voluntary donations of food, time or financial support.
There are two food packs distributed by Food Cupboard: one providing the basic food needed to feed a family of four for one week, and one for a small family (single parent and baby or very young child, with nappies and baby milk/food as required).
The packs include nonperishable, frozen and fresh food. An adjustment is made for family size by increasing or decreasing the frozen and fresh food. Larger families may well receive a ‘double pack’ made up of two complete packs.
