Give a Lunch at Lent
Posted: Thu, 14 Mar, 2019 (1 week ago) by Mel
Following the success of the Reverse Advent Calendar, I would like to propose a Lent appeal.
Why not forgo a meal (or two) during Lent and use the fast to pray. In addition why not donate a lunch or another meal to The Foodbank by donating the ingredients to make a family meal?
For example: Lunch or dinner- a jar of pasta sauce and a packet of dried pasta
a tinned meat pie and canned vegetables
a jar of curry sauce and a packet of rice
You could even add a pudding- a tin of fruit or rice pudding
- a tinned sponge pudding and a can/ carton of custard
Breakfast - a packet of cereal, a carton of long-life milk, a jar of marmalade or a carton of fruit juice.
Morning coffee/ afternoon tea - a packet of biscuits, a jar of coffee or a packet of teabags and a carton of long-life milk.
There are plenty of options - just consult the list of Foodbank foods at the back of your church and create a meal to give to a household which is struggling.

If coming to the church from the Norwich direction, head west along the A47. As you approach Hockering, there is an angled turn off to Hockering itself. Ignore this and turn right into The Street only when you have passed Mill Lane on your left. Once on The Street, turn left and follow the road round to your right. You will see St. Michael's on your right. There is usually space to park on the side of this quiet road in front of the church itself.
If coming to the church from the Dereham direction, bear left onto an unnamed road which heads directly to the church. At this left turn you will see a white P on blue background (parking) sign) As you actually turn into the unnamed road heading to the church you can see St. Michael's in the distance.
