Food parcels is an initiative that supports people in need, who are experiencing financial difficulties such as loss of job, illness and homelessness. These people are identified by professionals such as health visitors, youth support workers, social workers, probation officers and pastoral care workers, who will contact the church office and request a parcel. This is a valuable resource that can help until benefits are sorted or specialist help is identified.
This project relies upon the generosity of the church. Anyone can donate food, toiletries and money on a Sunday morning or to the church office. There are also opportunities to shop and help pack. It is an excellent way for the Forge to reach out into the local community and make a difference.
