James Tweats: May 2018
We have received a letter from Aylesbury Vineyards Storehouse Manager James Tweats which said...
"I wanted to thank you for your regular and continuing support of Storehouse. This year we have extended our food bank to supply fresh food and vegetables and frozen meat where possible to provide a healthier option. for clients. This has been very popular and the number of food parcels we have given out has increased.
In 2017, during January and March, we gave out 459 Food Parcels which fed 784 adults and children. This year, for the same period January to March, we have given out 616 food parcels which have fed 1457. We knew the need had increased but had no idea the amount of children and adults we were feeding had almost doubled.
Thank you so much for your support of Storehouse. It is appreciated and I do hope you are able to continue to support Storehouse in the coming year."
