Poole Food Bank

The church supports Poole Food Bank which helps individuals and families who, for a variety of reasons, do not have the money to buy the food they need. There is a basket at the back of the church, on the right hand side as you go in, for food donations. The food we donate makes such a difference to so many people.  NOTE: We do not give out food – for that, you have to go the foodbank. We need someone to take the Food items, each week, to the Poole Food Bank. The Food Bank is only open week day mornings so you would need to be free during the day. There are usually a lot of tins so it can be heavy lifting although there will be someone in church to help you load the items into your car and some help at the Food Bank the other end. If you think you could help, please let the church office know.

A selection of suitable provisions for the food bank


The Food Bank is always grateful for what we, and the other churches in Poole, provide. Some items such as tinned fish, pasta, long life milk and long life fruit juice are particularly welcome. Food should ideally have a shelf-life of 6 months and tins with ring-pulls are very useful. This is the list of items which the Food Bank always needs:

Milk (UHT/Powdered)                             Pasta/Rice (1kg)

Cereal                                                        Tinned Vegetables

Tinned Soup                                             Tea bags/Coffee

Fruit Juice (carton)                                  Instant Mash Potato

Pasta Sauces                                             Tinned Meat/Fish

Baked Beans                                             Tinned Fruit

Rice/Sponge Pudding (tinned)                Sugar (500g)

Tomatoes (tinned                                     Biscuits/Snack Bars
