The Bassetlaw Food Bank was established by a group of organisations, having concern for those needing food in the community, in May 2013. The Food Bank now has a distribution centre on Lowtown Street, Worksop and is about to open another distribution centre in Retford. It also runs satellite pick up centres in local villages. Last year the Food Bank fed 2000 adults and 600 children.

To obtain a food parcel (food for 3 days for every meal sufficient for all adults and children) they must be referred by an agency that has agreed to our protocol. i.e. they are checking information and supporting them in other ways. All food is donated by individuals in shops, churches, offices and factories with a donation box. We also have collections at supporting supermarkets.

Poplars has a donation box out every Sunday, at Norbridge Academy, to collect food or financial support. We have information on standing orders and Gift Aid and what our most wanted food items are each week. Our fellowship has five volunteers for the Bassetlaw Food Bank who help at the centre or with supermarket collections.

Please contact Morag Turner or the church office for more information or donations.
