Foodstore@Cooke is a developing ministry providing emergency food parcels, to those in need in our community.

Each hamper provides everything that the family or individual will need for 3 days.

To date we have distributed nearly 100 boxes, many of which have been in partnership with the Greater Belfast Gateway Team.

If you would like to contribute food stuffs at any time, these can be placed in the big blue bin in the Reception area. However when there is a need to replenish the boxes, lists of specific items will be on the Foodstore Noticeboard in the Reception area.

This week’s most needed items are marked in red.

  • Cereal
  • Sugar
  • Soup
  • Baked  beans

The hampers are supplemented with some fresh produce eg milk, potatoes, cheese etc, at the time of distribution and donations towards these is also appreciated.  One hundred per cent of what you give, be it food or money, will go directly to those who are most vulnerable. Every gift makes a difference.
