Food bank donations requested for our Harvest Service, Sunday 7 October

As we leave the summer behind, the season of “mellow fruitfulness” is behind us which means it is time to think of our harvest festival gifts.

At Oat Street  we have agreed that we should lend our support, as we have done for some time, to Caring Hands in the Vale.  This is Evesham’s local Food Bank which we have supported at both Harvest and Easter. Of late, the demand on their capacity has been very heavy, and so to coincide with our Harvest service we would welcome donations to help boost their stocks.

Caring Hands say they would particularly appreciate supplies of the following; all in tins/packets/jars please, no fresh foods.

  • Meat balls
  • Irish stew
  • Beans and sausages in tins
  • Chicken in white sauce
  • Dried or powdered mashed potato
  • Pasta sauce jars (but not pasta, they have plenty!)
  • Flavoured pasta meals in packets
  • Tuna
  • Sardines
  • Jacobs (or own brand) crackers
  • Savoury biscuits
  • Coffee

If you can help with any of the above, please bring your donations along to our Harvest Service at 11am on 7th October and they will be most welcome.  Thank you!
