Food donations for the Shrewsbury Ark

The Shrewsbury Ark provides a drop-in day centre for homeless and vulnerable people. It provides free meals, snacks and warm drinks, and also works closely with local food banks.

They are always grateful for non-perishable food items, such as tea, coffee, sugar, cereals, tinned meat and fish, cakes, biscuits and toiletries and these can be left in the Ark box at the back of the church, where someone will take them to the Ark.

Cook with residual heat

Turning off the oven five minutes before the meal is ready will allow the food to continue cooking while also saving some energy.

Christmas lights

If your strands of Christmas fairy lights are older than 10 years it will be more efficient to replace them with newer ones with LED bulbs. They can save you up to 90% or more on power costs and will last longer than traditional bulbs.

Food waste

Stop your green bin from smelling bad between collections by keeping food waste in compostable bags in your freezer, if there is space, and only putting it in the bin just before collection. This could also help keep your freezer fuller, which makes it run more efficiently.
