We regularly support the work of Families in Need (FIND) Ipswich by donating food and providing volunteers.
FIND offers a lifeline to people in Ipswich and the surrounding areas, who are experiencing poverty and despair. They provide free food parcels and personal care items to help people get through a crisis, as well as furniture, bedding and other household items where the person or family has none. Some of the people in crisis supported with food parcels need help for many weeks until their benefits, wages or health are restored.
Overall, an army of over 70 volunteers from many walks of life regularly give their time freely to check and sort the donated food, collect items from local stores, make up the food parcels and deliver them.
The demand for food parcels has risen year on year and FIND now distributes an average of 70 parcels every week and even more at Christmas - totalling more than 5000 every year. For more info, and if you would like to get involved, please visit follow the link below.
