Banc Bwyd Bro Ddyfi Food Bank
We appreciate all donations of food, but are aware that some people cannot donate food but would still like to support our work. With this in mind, we can accept cheques made payable to Banc Bywd Bro Dyfi Food Banc and sent to :
For those who would like to make a monetary donation, please ring the number below.
We have now been running for four months and this month we have issued food supplies to ten people. We have been able to do this thanks to the generosity of people in various churches. October has been a busy month.
Thanks to the Machynlleth Town Council we now have a dry room in the Plas for storage of our food supplies and from various cash donations have been able to purchase shelving so that everything is in logical order thus enabling speedy packing of food parcels.
After a mere five months we now have Bank account and have been able to pay in the various cash donations and fund raising monies.
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.
