Foodbank IOM seeking new volunteers for HQ


There are fears hundreds of Island children could be going hungry, as families struggle to meet the rising cost of living.

Foodbank Isle of Man says in addition to its growing number of users, primary schools have identified pupils who are not being properly fed at home.

The charity, which opened an expanded new headquarters at Ballafletcher on Monday 21st May, expects demand for its donations this year to run into the thousands.

Director Neal Mellon says education bosses are working alongside volunteers.

Foodbank is seeking more volunteers to carry out various duties in its new home.

For more information, you can contact the charity on 311550.
