Alton Foodbank Update

Alton Foodbank are continuing to work hard to keep families in Alton fed. They are currently doing “drop off”  parcels rather than working through the distribution centre. 53 families were helped last week.  Any food donations (except sardines please) are welcome, especially pasta, UHT milk and bars of chocolate (not sweets).  Please use the drop off boxes at Waitrose or Sainsburys . Many thanks

Here is the latest one Revd Andrew’s ‘Thought for the Day’
