In October we also formed a link with the Co-op where there is now a box for donations of food which has given us at least a boxful of food each week. Also in October we have been blessed with a very generous gift giving by children and their parents at the harvest festivals at Machynlleth and Llanbrynmair primary schools for which we are very grateful.

From our supplies we make up boxes of food. Each box has enough food for three days and where necessary we supply up to three boxes enabling people to eat for nine days. Sadly this is a necessary provision because often there is delay in getting the correct benefit sorted and paid in a timely manner.

We now have very good supplies of tinned soup, bake beans, pasta and tea bags but please are short of tinned potatoes or Smash, tinned fruit for puddings, rice(small packets please) and biscuits or chocolate to enable us to put a treat in each parcel so we would particularly welcome gifts of these items.
