In February the Busy Bees met at the Victoria Rooms to learn about the need for food banks, and to help organise the food that has been collected recently in the Milverton Food Bank. They learnt that non food items are also needed such as toothpaste, and easy cook food that only requires a kettle or a microwave is wanted as some recipients do not have a cooker. On the Taunton Food Bank website there is a list of what is particularly needed and what items they have enough of. The Milverton Food Bank is in the Church and some of the Busy Bees have made posters to advertise this.
We ended the session with some pancake tossing and races as Shrove Tuesday was two days away. As you can see from the photos not all the pancake tossing was as accurate as it might have been!
