Batley Food Bank

Batley Food Bank

Batley Food Bank collects food from the public and redistributes it to families in need, providing enough food for the whole family for three meals a day for one week.

Gomersal St Mary’s are proud to give our continual support to our local food bank in Batley.

Together we can make a big difference to local families who are struggling to make ends meet; it does not have to be a bag full of food, just one item added to your weekly shopping list – supermarkets own brands are fine. Items can be left at the school office.

A reminder of items needed:

Anything non-perishable is okay, but these things are in short supply:

  • Tinned vegetables
  • Tinned potatoes
  • Tinned meat or fish
  • Tinned rice pudding
  • Tinned or packet custard
  • Instant dessert (like Angel Delight – but own supermarket brand is good)
  • UHT Milk
  • Breakfast Cereal
  • Coffee
  • Tea Bags
