Storehouse

Serving families in crisis

What is Storehouse?

All Saints’ is one of many churches in and around St Andrews that practically supports the work of Storehouse.

Storehouse is a foodbank serving the most vulnerable people in our community of north east Fife.

Since 2006 Storehouse has been giving out bags of food and toiletries to individuals or families who are in crisis and are unable to provide for themselves.  These are people who may have lost a job, had a family split up, been the victims of domestic violence, or had their benefits delayed or suspended.

In desperate times we are able to meet their immediate need for food and extend God’s kindness to them.

Get involved

If you want to commit to giving to the Storehouse project please complete a form (found on the window ledge near the pulpit) in the church building and return it to Ann Loades.

What to donate

These are a few of the recommended items, but you can also check the Storehouse website to find out if there are any items they need in particular.

Please buy good quality ‘labelled’ brands, not cheap ‘value’ range. We want to show how much God values these families.
