Wantage and Grove Food Bank
I am writing on behalf of Wantage and Grove Food Bank to update you on our latest contact number.
Helen Margett who has been our main contact for many years has now relinquished her role.
A mobile phone will be manned to take calls for food parcel requests in the Wantage, Grove and surrounding villages
The new number is 07543 852939
The email address remains the same and can also be used to contact us.
If you come across someone who would benefit from a food parcel then please do not hesitate in referring their situation to us. It is our policy not to accept requests for food directly from members of the public, in order hopefully to have some degree of informed discretion about those accessing our service.
Finally, it has been an extremely busy year, delivering over 100 parcels since January.
This has depleted our stock of food considerably.
We would be grateful for any contributions of food or money, especially at Harvest Festival time.
