Most needed in March

Because of high demand since before Christmas, our stocks of nearly 20 of the 45 food and toiletry items we give to clients are currently severely depleted.

Our most needed list for March has 10 of these items, including jars of fish or meat paste and peanut butter, breakfast cereals (500g size) and jars of honey and jam.

Also listed are packets of dried potato and savoury biscuits, as well as children’s desserts (jellies, puddings & Angel Delight), packets of dried custard needing only water and tins of rice pudding.

The non-food items we especially need this month are unisex deodorant and toilet rolls.
