Please could you ask if anyone in your church would be willing to take on some or all of the following:

· Organisation of the store room at the Beacon
· Supervise collection of donations
· Organise/ manage Harvest donations
· Organise the Christmas Hampers
· General admin and record keeping
· Occasional talks / giving information to local churches / schools / groups.
We would be more than happy for two people (or more) to share the above jobs between them. If you are interested or would like to know more please contact Foodbank on Wantageandgrovefoodbank@gmail.com or come to our next meeting on Thursday 17th January 2pm
Many thanks, D on behalf of the FoodBank Committee
