We’re very short of carrier bags at the moment. Carrier bags are vital to us, as each food “parcel” needs four of them.

The 5p charge for carrier bags has reduced plastic bag use by more than 85%, which is great. However, it’s meant donations of bags to food banks have also drastically fallen. Giving your spare carrier bags to a food bank is a valid and necessary form of recycling, so we ask that you please add some strong full-size bags (like the ones pictured) to your weekly donation.

Thank you!
