THIS week saw the launch of the People’s Food Bank by the Bluebell Community Council in Park West..

This has now become an essential part of our work.
“Today marks a significant development of this service. The food bank is real partnership in action. It involves community groups and agencies working together to meet the challenge of poverty head on.
Bluebell did not wait for others to give a hand out. It worked with others to provide this essential service.”
The People’s Food Bank is now operating on Lavery Avenue in Park West.
