New Shelving Is A Help To Bournemouth Foodbank

Posted on: 31/05/2018

Bournemouth Foodbank has new shelving at its location in St. George’s Methodist Church in Haviland Road.

It has a number of different locations across the area which aim to provide three days nutritionally balanced emergency food, and offer support to local people in crisis who are referred to them by support agencies. Everyone who comes for food needs to have a valid foodbank voucher.

“A donation from J.P. Morgan of over £900.00 has helped us to purchase new shelving to help us streamline donations of food and products,” says Becca Lent, Warehouse Manager. “The shelving we brought from a previous location was rather dated and we can be so much more efficient in how we work.”

Bournemouth Foodbank also had the shelves assembled and fitted by a group of volunteers from the J.P. Morgan Good Works programme.

“That was a fantastic bonus for us and we were so impressed with how quickly the team put everything together,” added Becca. “They worked really hard but seemed to enjoy themselves at the same time.”

Caroline Donnell, from the J.P. Morgan Community Relations Committee went along to see what had been achieved.

“The foodbank staff told us how these new shelves will help them in their work so we are delighted to have been able to help.”

(J.P. Morgan employs 4,000 people at its technology and operations centre in Bournemouth and has a strong history of community engagement).
