Hatfield’s food bank for struggling people has relocated in the town centre.

The Manna Food Bank, operated by Open Heavens Christian Centre, has moved from 5A Town Centre to 62A, and is open on Fridays between 1pm and 4pm.

Food bank administrator Cathy Serra said: “There are a lot of really desperate people who come to us, and they have been getting lost because we need to get it signposted.

“Even though we have told the agencies where we are they still get lost.”

Cathy also said anyone who wanted to help the food bank could volunteer to collect and work in the warehouse, or organise fundraising activities.

Accepted donated food includes canned meats, tuna and salmon, jelly (no glass), canned stew and chili, tea bags, coffee (ground, no beans), canned vegetables, sugar and tinned baked beans.

They also accept canned fruits, pasta, cereals, rice, powdered milk, spaghetti and baby formula (Enfamil/Similac).
