Another food project opens
ANOTHER project to help people who are struggling to feed themselves and their families has opened.
The FOODStORE at the Juice project in Cadbury Heath serves people living in Cadbury Heath, Oldland, Longwell Green, Barrs Court and Warmley.
It is part of The Matthew Tree Project, a Bristol charity which supports and helps people move out of poverty.
Janice Suffolk, director of Juice, said “We have identified a significant number of people in this area who are really struggling and have an urgent need for food. It’s not just about those on benefits or who are unemployed. We are expecting a large number of people who have lost good jobs, had relationship breakdowns or are running up unmanageable debts.”
The Juice FOODStORE is open on Thursdays and is run on a voucher system.
Donations can be given into the Juice office or via a collection points in Asda, Longwell Green. A shopping list can be found at www.the-matthew-tree-project.org/fooddonations.html.
