Food bank service to slash deprivation in Walton
7:30am Monday 11th March 2013 in News
A VITAL food bank service will be set up to provide for needy people in Walton.
Organiser Jane Robinson, of Walton Road, has been working on the scheme for several weeks.
The food bank will act as an emergency supply which can be distributed those who are struggling to buy food themselves.
Jane said: “There are large pockets of people in Walton who are struggling and in dire need of help.
“This would be an enormous help to a lot of people and really boost our community."
Jane has started collecting food to build up the stock.
She has been offered a storage space at Walton Community Centre and will run the project from there.
Suitable candidates for help from the food bank will be referred to organisers through official channels, such as the police and social services.
Anyone interested in helping or with ideas to boost the scheme should email Jane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
