Harvest is an important time of year for food banks. We’re thankful that many churches and schools mark this season by collecting non-perishable food to help food banks in our network support people in crisis, as part of this celebration of God’s provision and goodness.
We know that this year things are a bit different, with many churches meeting online, and all of us needing to put in place measures to limit the spread of coronavirus and keep one another safe.
But we’d love you to consider whether your church or school can safely run a food collection to help keep food banks stocked so that they can support people in greatest need in our communities, as we move into a period where we expect to see exceptionally high levels of need.
Below are some resources to help you organise a food collection, including practical guidance, a prayer guide, and resources for a primary school assembly or class Harvest service.
