July update

Dave Woskett, Brentwood Foodbank volunteer provides us with this update:

Good afternoon to all of our kind supporters.  We hope that you are all keeping well.

I have been with the Foodbank for several  years and I am continually humbled by some of the clients that I meet.  Recently I met a middle aged couple with children. They are in dire straights – they have lost their home and are living in their car.
The father, who was the main breadwinner, has now lost his job. They really didn’t want to come to the Foodbank.  They had been hard working and self sufficient all of their adult lives.
All of this happened  over a very short period of time. They are very beaten down but are still hopeful for the future. The food parcel that we were able to give them through your kindness and generosity has made life a little more  bearable and a little less anxious knowing that they
would be able to feed their children.
We see stories like this far to often, this why once again we are asking if you would be able to continue to support us with donations, we appreciate every single item that we are lucky enough to receive. Sadly there is no let up  in the need for our help.
We would like to say a huge thank you to each and every  one of you for all that you do to help the community  through the Foodbank.

Kind regards

Dave (Foodbank volunteer)
