Foodbank stays open despite snow
VOLUNTEERS from Salisbury’s foodbank have been battling on through the snow to make sure that people don’t go hungry during the cold snap.
Yesterday representatives from the charity continued to deliver food parcels to people in need despite the snowy conditions.
The charity says that many people have been forced to choose between eating and heating with crippling price rises in energy bills pushing many families into the red.
Foodbank manager Louise Wratten said: “Winter is always a very tough time of year for people living on the breadline. The Trussell Trust would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has donated to the foodbank recently, and to all our amazing volunteers.”
Salisbury foodbank, is currently in need of tinned potatoes, tinned green vegetables, tinned sponge pudding, tinned rice pudding and instant mash potatoes.
Donations can be taken to the Trussell Trust's headquarters on Ashfield Road, Salisbury.
