Harvest: The Food Bank collection is launched

The Harvest Festival Service in the beautifully decorated church in Markbeech this morning was lovely – making us think hard about how to reduce the differences between those who have and those who don’t. The first collection of food for the Edenbridge food bank gave the service a particular resonance – that there should be such hardship in leafy Kent should be impossible but as long as it exists we must try to do something about it. read more about the Food Bank here

  1. Locking up the church last night, I was overwhelmed by the generous response to the Markbeech church’s appeal on behalf of the food bank. Much had come in during the Harvest Festival, but there were more contributions all through the day. Thank you to everyone for sharing your food with others. It will all be delivered to the food bank this week, to be distributed as demand rises during the colder weather–already more than 40 families in the srea receive food from the bank, and as heating costs rise, food budgets will be squeezed harder. Of course we shall continue to collect non-perishable foods through the winter, and the church will always be open all day on Saturdays and Sundays to receive contributions. For those who want a few minutes of peace and tranquillity, it will also be open from six to eight o’clock on Tuesday evenings.
    thank you
