Our aim is to provide short-term emergency food relief to people and families in crisis in the local area. We are seeking to collect food from the public at supermarkets, churches, local groups and schools, to be ‘banked’ in our centres.
Most people who come to Foodbanks for emergency food are not homeless. They are families who have hit hard times, people who have been made redundant, become ill or are experiencing benefit delay: they are the UK’s hidden hungry. As you are no doubt aware, we are amongst the worst 10% of all areas nationally for levels of deprivation.
We have 3 distribution points during the week.
