Foodbank reaches villages
Church congregations at four village communities have been
stepping up their collections of donations for the Deal Area
Rector of Kingsdown, Ringwould, Ripple and Sutton the Rev Cathy
Sigrist was impressed at the numbers of gifts and is backing the
foodbank idea for those living out of town.
She said: “If you don’t know where your next meal is coming from
then the Deal Area Emergency Foodbank is here to help you and is
going from strength to strength.
“It is reaching out and helping individuals and families across the
region, not just in the town centre.”
Deal Area Emergency Foodbank started distributing early in December
and is part of the Trussel Trust, a Christian charity aiming to
empower local communities to combat poverty.
