Our community food bank is almost unique in this area in that we distribute mainly fresh fruit, vegetables and bread products instead of the more usual dry and non-perishable food items.
In partnership with Living Word Ministries, another local church, we collect food from supermarkets that is close to expiry date and would otherwise be thrown away. We then redistribute to up to 35 or 40 families and individuals on a weekly basis.
We take referrals from all the statutory caring bodies but people can self-refer if they bring proof that they are unemployed and/or on government benefits. Any organisation wishing to refer a family or an individual can download our referral form for the potential service user to bring with them on their first visit. referral form
