Caistor food bank to open in town’s methodist hall
It will be there to offer help to local people in crisis.
People may be referred by specialist agencies, such as social services, GP surgeries, schools, care centres, or to those who have simply found themselves struggling, particularly during this covid time.
The food bank sessions are planned to run on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 11am to 2pm from the hall at the side of the church.
As with other We Are ONE supplied food banks, people wishing to use the service will need to register on the website – https://www.weareonefoundation.co.uk/
All information will be kept confidential and only used for food bank purposes.
If internet access is not available, registration can be made at the door.
If getting to the Methodist Hall in Caistor is an issue, organisers hope to find a way to get goods out to home addresses.
A spokesman for the food bank said: “We realise deciding to approach a food bank can be daunting, however everyone will be dealt with respect and confidentiality.
“Food bank recipients should be prepared to bring proof of furlough, benefits, or eligibility for support etc.
“However, this can be talked through on a first visit to ensure there are no misunderstandings.”
