Food for Calais Refugees

I came across this post on Facebook this morning, from the group Hay, Brecon and Talgarth Sanctuary for Refugees:

"Request to the good folk of Hay on Wye and surrounding areas for food for Calais.

Ben from the Parsnipship in Cardiff is going to Calais on Monday to help cook (& bring supplies) at the Refugee Community Kitchen there. For those who don’t know, The Parsnipship are a vegetarian streetfood organisation who come to Hay for various events.
Derek from Hay Deli is driving to Cardiff on Sunday with food that he’ll be donating on behalf of the business but would be delighted if others would like to donate from the following;
Oil – Coconut Vegetable Olive
Tins – Tomatoes, Chickpeas, Pulses
Fruit – Apples, Bananas, Oranges
Veg – Onions, Ginger, Leeks, Mushrooms, Garlic, Carrots, Beetroot, Cauliflower , Cabbage (red & white) etc
Herbs – Parsley, Coriander
Dried pulses & rice – Chickpeas, Kidney, White beans, Lentils, Rice (In minimum 10kg bags)
Misc: Sugar, Salt
They don’t want pasta or potatoes...

Cash donations gratefully received, so that they can buy supplies when he gets to Calais- which can be made to Derek in Hay Deli today, Thursday or Saturday 2nd.

Derek.Hay Deli t: 01497 820708"

I've just been up to the Wholefood shop to give a donation.

For those who want to remember the hungry at home, there is also the Hay Food Bank, the Community Cupboard, who can be contacted on 07908 876978

Derek at the Wholefood Shop told me this morning that around £500 has been raised, which is very good news!
