Food drop-in is run by Christian groups

I read with interest the article in last Thursday’s edition (August 4) which described the work of a number of volunteers who regularly spend time at Ebenezer Methodist church distributing food parcels and other basic necessities to those who are less fortunate than the majority.

I have some knowledge of the project so I feel the article failed to make it clear that, whilst some of the helpers have little or no religious affiliation, the Food and Support Drop In was originated by the charity “Christians Together Halifax”. Some 56 churches throughout Calderdale support the project and the majority of the volunteers are Christians and members of different churches.

The Food and Support Drop In is an example of church members in Calderdale getting involved by reaching out to the most vulnerable members of the community
