Wigston Food Bank

A big thanks to the staff and pupils of Parklands Primary School, South Wigston. They donated a mountain of food from their Harvest Festival to the South Wigston Foodbank. In today's tough climate this was a gift that will help so many families in the area.

A great big thank you to the members of Slimming World Wigston for their donation to Oadby & Wigston Lions Club for the South Wigston Food Bank.

It's important to have a wide variety of produce to hand out at the South Wigston Foodbank. We collect from Tesco and Sainsbury's supermarkets and also top up our stores from the FareShare food collection depots.
