Basics Bank – Shopping List

Basics Bank is a group of food-banks run by Edinburgh City Mission, the aim of which is to assist people in a time of crisis and touch their lives with the love of God. One BB is based in the King’s Hall, home of Community Church Edinburgh, and is supported by Newington Churches Together. It is open on Thursday mornings from 10am.

People need to be referred to the food-bank by a church or social agency, and the help is geared to bridging the gap during a time of crisis rather than longer term assistance. Priestfield is supporting the Newington BB in a variety of ways: by prayer; by communicating volunteering needs and opportunities for staffing Thursdays; by collecting non-perishable food items, communicating what is particularly needed at any one time. Below is the regular ‘shopping list’ for donations and if you can help it would be much appreciated. You can print off the PDF version if necessary. Bring your gift to church on Sundays and we will deliver it, or hand it in to the King’s Hall directly while BB is open. Thanks for your help.
