The Posties Foodbank Update

The Posties Foodbank Update

A message from Kevin, a local Moulton resident and Crow Lane Postman:

'Great news. The Posties Foodbank, with tremendous support from Moulton Parish Council, has been awarded £500 by the Tesco's COVID 19 Communities Fund. The foodbank to date has relied on donations from the general public and Moulton residents in particular have been very generous, however this additional funding will help us support many more families throughout Northampton. Kevin, Crow Lane Postman '.

Everyone at Moulton Parish Council would like to congratulate Kevin and his colleagues for this well-deserved funding and thank them for all the wonderful support they have given households in need throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic.

At the start of the crisis, the Crow Lane depot set up a foodbank for people in need (vulnerable and shielding, those now out of work, those self-isolating etc ) led by postie Alan Mistry. As key workers they can get to every address in NN2, NN3, NN6, and NN7 dropping off supplies as part of their daily deliveries, including Moulton.

Please let Kevin know if:

• You become aware of anyone in need in these postcode areas and Kevin or the regular postman/woman will deliver a food parcel

• If you would like to make any donations to the foodbank: non-perishable items only for example, tinned-soup, pasta sauce, baked beans, chick peas, kidney beans, tomatoes, vegetables, tuna, rice pudding, pasta, tea, coffee, UHT milk, toiletries, cooking oil, cartons of fruit juice.

MAKE DONATIONS AT THE CROW LANE DEPOT OR ON YOUR DOORSTEP.

Crow Lane depot covers NN2, NN3, NN6, and NN7. The posties are picking up donations and giving food parcels out when requested in these areas of Northamptonshire.

You can bring donations to the Crow Lane Royal Mail Depot, Northampton NN3 9BX or regular posties in NN2, NN3, NN6, and NN7 are happy to pick up any donations from residents' door steps. So if you would like to do this please put a small note on the donation box/bag to ensure they understand that it is meant for them by writing for example: 'For Posties Foodbank'.

In case there is no post for you on that day, it might be a good idea to check during the day to see that the food has been taken unless you are happy to leave outside overnight.
