BENSHAM COMMUNITY FOOD CO-OP

BENSHAM COMMUNITY FOOD CO-OP

 

Bensham Community Food Co-op is a partnership of several local Gateshead charities that have been running a different sort of food bank since April 2016. We wanted to set something up that is run by the people who benefit from the food and to provide as much fresh food as possible as well as an element of choice.

 

We do not want to compete with existing food banks and, if you currently give your time or make donations to them please continue to do so. If you like the idea of something that’s run on different lines, that tries to involve the people who use it and offer them choice and healthier eating options then please consider donating some items to us. Even one or two things will help us to help others.

 

We need donations of:-

 

Vegetable oil

Dried lentils or split pea

Basmati Rice

Pasta

Tinned pulses and beans

Plain Flour, Gram Flour, Chapati Flour

Tinned tomatoes

Sugar

Coffee

Tea

 

But will accept donations of any tins / packets or dried goods

 

 

Your donation will make a big difference. Thank you

 

Donations are now being accepted at the school office.
