Harvest time is upon us again.  Last year many churches and schools donated their harvest food to Storehouse which really helped us to provide food throughout the winter months to those in need in our community.  If you are thinking of donating again this year, you can find some useful resources and information at http://www.stourvalleyvineyard.org/harvest-2014

Thank you. Beryl Worvell, Storehouse Team Leader.
