Stop families from going hungry in Haverhill this Harvest!



More local families than ever before are struggling with poverty and crisis.  The numbers coming to us for foodboxes are up 20% since last year.

Often, parents will go without adequate meals themselves so that their children can eat, or so they can save money to pay for the gas  to cook a meal.  Sometimes we visit a new client and are shocked to discover that their fridge and cupboards are literally bare.

Can you donate food, and prevent local families from going hungry?  Details of what we need are below:

Even better, could you make a financial donation?

This enables us to buy foods that are in short supply and cover the cost of running the foodbank warehouse, distribution and co-ordination. 
You can make a donation online here - https://localgiving.org/ReachHarvest, send us a cheque payable to Reach Community Projects or drop a cash donation into the office - Reach Community Projects, Wisdom Facilities Centre, 42 Hollands Road, Haverhill, CB9 8SA.

Alternatively you can do a BACS transfer with the reference 'Harvest':
