Burnham: Southminster foodbank launched to help families in crisis
9:00am Tuesday 3rd September 2013 in Local News
A new foodbank has opened to help families and individuals in crisis.
Dengie Food Pantry, which already runs a centre at Burnham Baptist Church, has started a distribution centre in Southminster from tomorrow.
It is organised by Churches Together and will operate from the United Reformed Church in North Street on Wednesdays from 10am to 12noon.
As with the Burnham service, agencies such the Citizens Advice Bureau will assess people’s needs before referring them to the food pantry.
They will be given vouchers valid for six weeks to exchange for food parcels.
