Appeal For Food Bank Donations In Rhyl

A busy food bank in Rhyl has issued an urgent appeal for donations of food as a result of the pandemic and lockdown restrictions, which have seen a rise in demand in one of the poorest areas in Wales.

Eunice Parry, who runs her charity from the ASK Centre on Water Street, has been helping to keep more than 20 people a week off the breadline through her food bank, which she runs in partnership with Citizens Advice Denbighshire, which refers families and individuals to her.

Ms Parry also receives support from the local Morrisons supermarket and a donation has also just been sent in fron Denbigh-based Lock Stock Self Storage, which has one of its chains of storage parks in Rhyl.

The ASK Centre is part of Rhyl’s United Church, where Ms Parry is the manager. She said: “It was initially just a 24-hour food bank to provide people with enough food for a day but since lockdown we’ve been putting together bigger food parcels with enough for up to five days.

“Prior to lockdown, the Centre provided a lot more services but since then we’ve had much more demand and although we’re doing the same amount of parcels, they’re much bigger now.”

She went on to add that the likes of bread and milk are provided, as well as non-perishables such as tea, coffee and tins of beans, microwavable rice, noodles, meat and veg, and food suitable for those who only have a kettle at home.

For more information about the food bank, get in touch with Citizens Advice Denbighshire on 01745 334 568, visit the website or contact them via their Facebook page.
