During 2017 we have experienced times of both plenty and of almost bare shelves. It can be quite tricky to get the balance right at times. For this reason we would like to encourage our supporters to focus on specific items. In particular we have a very healthy supply of pasta, soup and baked beans – enough to see us right through 2018! Longlife meat and fish – and vegetarian and vegan alternatives – are always in shorter supply.
