A community foodbank in Hemel Hempstead is looking to recruit volunteers to help run the community resource.

Open Table Foodbank has been established at All Saints Kings Langley and at St Mary’s Apsley, a small team of volunteers currently manages the foodbanks but in order to sustain this vital service in the community, new volunteers are needed.

There are three areas in which help is needed:

Foodbank

- Communications and promotion (weekly)

- Stock replenishment at All Saints (daily)

- Stock replenishment at St Mary’s (weekly).

In order to ensure the smooth operation of the foodbank, a co-ordination group is also needed. This would consist of the following roles:

Volunteers needed for Community Foodbank

- Co-ordinator

- Deputy co-ordinator

- Communications lead

- Stock lead (All Saints)

- Stock lead (St Mary’s).

If you can help with any of these roles, either on the co-ordination group or as a volunteer, contact the Vicar of All Saints, Fr. James McDonald on 01923 903531 ([email protected]) or the Parish Administrator, Norma Howie on 01923 266596 ([email protected]).

The community foodbank is open to anyone who is need, of any faith or none, and no vouchers are required.

All Saints is open daily 9.30am till 5pm and St Mary’s is open on a Thursday between 10am and 3pm.

All Saints has thanked everyone who has been donating. Donations can be left at either church during their open hours or at Dunelm Mill, Apsley during trading hours.
