Last Friday 2nd September, The Food Bank in partnership with Jesus Celebration Centre, opened its 5th serving centre in Milton Keynes!
Working out of the JCC building at Lloyds Court in CMK, the new centre will provide a collection point for clients to redeem their Food Bank vouchers on a Friday afternoons between 2pm - 4pm.
The other Food Bank Centres are at Milton Keynes Christian Centre in Oldbrook on a Monday and Thursday, CrossLinks on the Lakes Estate on a Tuesday and Friday, New Life Church North at Wolverton Mill South on a Wednesday and St Georges Church, Wolverton Town on a Saturday.
On Saturday, we had a stand at the celebration of arts and culture in Campbell Park which was organised by the Milton Keynes Islamic Arts and Culture Organisation. The event was about building bridges between diverse communities and celebrating the things we have in common. The day was well attended and I met many interesting people and made some useful contacts.
The same evening local group TesTament, held a Music and Message event as a fund raiser for The Food Bank at Christchurch Stantonbury. The guest speakers were from the Christian Motorcycle Association, a very interesting group who use their hobby to spread the word. The evening was well attended and everyone enjoyed some great music, inspirational speaking and excellent refreshments! A big thank you to Mike and the crew for making this possible.
