Centres temporarily closed, delivery only service for now

Due to COVID-19 we have had to temporarily close all of our 5 centres until further notice. We hope to open them again in the future, once it is safe to do so.

For now, we are operating a delivery only service. If you are in crisis and cannot afford food, please contact Citizens Advice, your housing association, the council or your usual agency to get a referral to us.

They will then contact us with your details and we will arrange a delivery to your doorstep.

Please be patient with us, we are extremely busy but we are here for all of those who need us.

A current list of urgently needed items can be seen here.

A snippet from this week’s newsletter from the Foodbank –

“There have been moments of frustration when the phone has not stopped ringing, or a donation has arrived just as we thought we were done or the anticipated cup of tea has gone cold, again….and then the phone will ping with a message from a client saying how much they appreciated their food parcel, and you remember what you’re doing and why. And, more importantly, what a great bunch of people are pulling together to make things happen.

Many thanks to you all for your hard work, your support and your prayers.”

This week has been another one of ups and downs, highs and lows. The low point being that we have fed three times more people in April 2020 than we did April 2109. Whilst it’s worrying that so many people need our help we should be grateful that we are in a position to provide that help.
Thanks to the support and generosity of local people and businesses we do have food to feed people, we have amazing volunteers to pack food boxes and deliver them to clients. This week we have made 105 home deliveries and fed about 237 people.
