Halo Food Pantry
Our new initiative is off to a slow start but we’re still using church supplies to support people
locally. Thank you very much for your continued support.
We could do with some tinned meat for sandwiches, pasta sauce, pasta ‘n’ sauce packets, tea,
coffee, toothpaste, shampoo, shower gel, deodorant and the usual stuff (still no pasta, thanks!).
