Donations in the form of both cash and food have decreased noticeably over the past several months. The Food Bank believes that one reason for this may be the publication of the fact that Brixham Town Council kindly made a grant of £2,000. This is quite true but that amount of money represents the rent the Food Bank has to pay to the Council and so the two cancel each other out. The Bank is of course very grateful to the Council; without this grant we could not continue.
At the present time our outgoings are greater than our incomings, be that cash or food. On behalf of the Food Bank I would appeal to your readers for help, whether in the form of food or cash. People have been extremely generous in the past. However, the Food Bank’s position at the moment is not sustainable and, should this situation continue unchanged the Food Bank will be forced to close by the end of this year.
Please help. The Bank is open every Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 2pm to 4pm and is situated at the back of the Town Hall, behind the Library.
