Foodshare

Something extra for Christmas?

Thanks to all who have been donating non-perishable food items for Maidenhead Foodshare to give to families struggling to pay grocery bills. Please consider giving something extra or special for Christmas if possible by mid December so that there is time to get your gifts to the people before Christmas Day. Please note that at the moment Foodshare have enough pasta and baked beans so please consider providing other non-perishable foodstuffs. There‘s a drop-off point in each church.
