St Mary’s supports the Hastings Foodbank.
While the church is closed we are unable to collect donations of food, but they are still open and are desperate for food donations. If instead you would like to make cash donation this link should take you to the giving page.
The foods most in demand at the moment are tinned meat, tinned fish, tinned fruit, tinned potatoes, tinned veg, tinned tomatoes, tea and coffee.
You can see what is in a typical food parcel here.
Alison Langlay-Smith organises the transport of food from Frittenden to Hastings, for more details her contact number is 852279.

The Hastings Foodbank is seeded by the Trussell Trust which runs the largest network of foodbanks in the UK, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis. Thirteen million people live below the poverty line and in the last year we gave 1,583,668 three-day emergency food supplies to people in crisis.
