WPLine 1 - a

We meet EVERY THURSDAY from 10.00am until 12.00pm.

New donations are sorted by date and contents to ensure efficient use of stock. It is then stored - items with short terms dates in the food cupboards and longer dates in a garage for later use. As the cupboard stock is used up, more is transferred from the garage store.

New packs are made up to replace the ones used during the previous week. One table holds the contents for one pack.

As a list is read out, volunteers collect the contents and put it on the table for packing. The list is re-read as packing takes place to check that all the items are present and correct.

A short greeting and a suggested menu, (to help the food last a week), are added to each pack.

Every pack is given an ID number (A1, A2, A3 . . . B1, B2, B3 etc) to ensure they do not get mixed up. Sometimes we make up 1or 2 at other times we might need 10.

The packs are then given out to the deliverers who are there or stored for collection by them later in the day.

A time of refreshment, (tea, coffee and doughnuts), chat and socialising then round off the morning. It can also be used for discussion and problem solving when needed.
