The Food Network which I have mentioned is currently looking for a longer term large store area, which can be used for non-perishable and fresh food storage. Please email me if you now of a suitable large space at email@example.com

We would take standing order donations. If you could drop a line to the food bank email address at firstname.lastname@example.org I will reply with the details.
We are not in need of a microwave, but thank you for the offer.
