I thought I would share some facts and figures, which clearly demonstrate just how big the need is in Swindon for what Swindon Foodbank provides.
Since November 2005 we have been able help 16,135 people. A standard box contains 3 meals per day for 3 days. That’s an incredible 145,215 meals!
In 2012 so far we have helped 850 people, that is 2,550 meals! If each meal was presented on a 9” plate and laid out in a line that’s 22,950 inches - or to put it another way, just over a third of a mile. At this rate by the end of the year we would be able to lay our plates around the entire circumference of Coate Water lake.
Without your continued support, for which we are truly grateful, we would not be able to complete our circle around the lake. Your help is still needed, so far this year we have had an astonishing 4.7 tonnes of food donated, however we have distributed 8.3 tonnes.
But as always God's provision will no doubt become apparent.
