We aim to demonstrate God’s love for all in a practical and tangible way.
The foodbank is designed to provide food in a crisis and is not an ongoing source of help. Foodbank volunteers can direct the clients towards more permanent solutions through the benefit system, organise debt counselling when appropriate and perhaps personal counselling.
Food is donated by individuals, church groups and at food collection days at supporting supermarkets. For details of what or how to donate, please call the number below.
How the System Works
People in crisis can ask for a red voucher from agencies, such as Social Services, Citizen’s Advice, Lions Community Store, children’s centres or GP Surgeries. They will assess the client’s needs and give them the voucher to exchange for food. The person then presents the voucher at the Foodbank where food is supplied for each family member, sufficient for three days. The food is non-perishable for easy storage and is nutritionally balanced.
Whatever the reason for the crisis, we offer non-judgemental support, a listening ear and perhaps a prayer if that is wanted.
