We are now helping St Helens Foodbank!
Newton Medical Practice is now a referral centre for the foodbank and anyone in the community in severe financial problems or in crisis can visit the practice to ask for a voucher to be referred to it.
As well as being a referral centre, the practice is also a St Helens Foodbank repository and we have set up a collection point in our reception where anyone in the community can come a drop off food or other items for distribution to the foodbank.
The following items are always needed at the foodbank:
ORANGE JUICE (Long Life)
TINNED VEGETABLES (NOT PEAS OR BEANS)
TINNED RICE PUDDING/CUSTARD
TINNED POTATOES/INSTANT MASH
PKT SAVOURY RICE
PKT PASTA IN SAUCE
PKT SUPER NOODLES
JARS OF PASTA/CURRY SAUCE
LONG GRAIN RICE
