Welwyn Garden City Food Bank!

On Wednesday Heather & Jess paid a visit to our local Food Bank in the New Zion Christian Fellowship in Welwyn Garden City. The Food Bank gives out about 500 items of food per week, to those in need in Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield. The food you provide is given to those who really are in desperate need – for example those unable to work due to health problems, redundancy and those waiting for benefits to come through.

Heather & Jess donated lots of food to the Food Bank but they are always looking for more! If you would like to visit the Food Bank to make a donation, please feel free to call in on a Wednesday morning (between 9am and 11am) and they will be happy to show you around. The Food Bank is located in the New Zion Christian Fellowship, 140 Cole Green Lane, Welwyn Garden City, AL7 3JE.

The list below is a list of items that they distribute regularly. However, we are extremely grateful for any (non-perishable items) to be donated.
