THE ORGANISERS OF ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST FESTIVAL (aka OUTWEST), have announced that this year’s festival will formally be supporting Storehouse Foodbank.
Inspired by the long-running FoodDrop campaign run by the festival’s Sunday night headliners, Ferocious Dog, Outwest are encouraging everyone attending the festival, taking place 13th – 15th July near Trowbridge in Wiltshire, to bring at least one item of healthy, non-perishable (tinned, dried or longlife, unopened and in-date) food, for donation on arrival at any of the festival entrances to Trowbridge’s Storehouse Foodbank.
Whist all non-perishable items are greatfully received, items that festival-goes are being particularly encouraged to donate include: Tinned meals; Canned fish, meat & vegetables; Jars of sauces, Condiments, and Toiletries (shampoo, shower gel, deodorant, toothpaste).
The Storehouse Foodbank is an independent community project that aims to provide short-term support of food and toiletries to families, couples and individuals in the Trowbridge and surrounding areas. They are a completely non-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers.
Once Upon A Time In The West Festival is a 100% independent, family-friendly Westcountry festival, taking place in deepest Wessex, a few miles from Trowbridge. Featuring three days of live music, a high quality selection of local and international food and beverages (including a showcase by local craftsmen PressHead Cider), and a wealth of other non-musical activities.
Festival organiser ‘Flounder’ Murrary says, “By asking our fabulous festivalgoers to bring even just one item for donation to Storehouse Foodbank, we can make a positive impact on the lives of some of the most vulnerable people within the community that hosts our festival each year.”
