Shoreline Food Bank Manager, Julie Woods, receives Lord Mayor's Citizens 4 Good Commendation for Shoreline Food Bank

THE founded of Shoreline Food Bank been at a celebrating after receiving the Lord Mayor of Sefton's Citizens 4 Good Commendation at Bootle Town Hall. Julie Woods, the founder of the Shoreline Food Bank, in Southport, received her Citizens 4 Good certificate of recognition from the Lord Mayor of Sefton, Councillor Dave Robinson, for her good deeds and support she provides to the local community. She founded the Shoreline Food Bank, in Southport 6 years ago, and today is manned entirely by volunteers. It hands out up to 50 free food parcels every day to those who need them, including up to 5 families with young children, which means almost 13 thousand food parcels a year. These food parcels contain fresh savoury pies, fresh bread, fresh sweet pastries, fresh vegetables of the season, as well as tins of soup and beans, toiletries and biscuits. The food is donated from members of the public, bakeries, supermarkets, food stores and farms from the Southport area. "I am utterly delighted to receive this award. It's wonderful to get it for me, but it is really an award for ALL the volunteers, who turn up every weekday to pack and hand out fresh bakery, fresh vegetables and fruit to those who need food in Southport. Without them, we would not have such an active and busy Food Bank. I am also so grateful to normal people, local bakeries, local supermarkets, food stores and local farms, who so generously donate the food, which we give away every day. I am passionate about helping the most needy in our society and I have plans to open another food bank in Ainsdale hopefully later this year." said Julie.
