Our foodbank is a project founded by local churches and community groups, working together towards stopping hunger in our local area.
Over 100 people signed up to volunteer on our awareness-raising night on 6th September 2012. We then opened our first distribution centre at The Foundry church in December 2012 with help from Cllr Eddie Jones.
From then on we grew! We now have over 200 volunteers on our list and five distribution centre sessions each week; Monday, Wednesday,Thursday and 2 on Friday. We would like to have a centre open on Tuesday and are actively recruiting volunteers to make that happen.
If you are interested in helping us, go to the ‘Give Help’ tab on this website and click on ‘Volunteer’. See what it involves and complete the application form. We’ll take it from there.
