What a massive heart! The team at K International show yet another way of helping to communicate care in the local community. Their contribution to the MK Foodbank during Harvest Festival will see many families being fed over the coming weeks. Many thanks to the K International family
The Food Bank’s aim is that no child or adult goes to bed hungry in Milton Keynes!
Run By The Community, For The Community
Set up in 2004 by a local Christian Centre, led by Mark Sherratt, the Senior Pastor, The Food Bank relies entirely on donations of food and money from local schools, churches, businesses, organisations and individuals, working together to fulfil the aim and making sure that no child or adult should go to bed hungry. It is manned purely by volunteers who donate their time in a variety of ways to make sure that the service is run to precision, whilst giving opportunities for school groups, offenders and those with all manner of disabilities to become involved in the sessions to develop skills in the warehouse
How Does The Food Bank Work?
Referral Agencies identify families and individuals who need our support and issue a voucher entitling them to a food parcel. Clients can receive a food parcel 5 times in a rolling 12 month period although some cases may need a bit more flexibility for further help. Within this service, there is also time for a chat and a cup of tea.
