Foodbank

We provide food, including fresh food and fruit & vegetables, to individuals and families who are unable to afford a proper meal every day for themselves or their children. Our primary focus is on providing nutritious food. We aim to provide a minimum of 3 days of food, more if we have stocks.   We accommodate as far as we can particular dietary requirements (for example, vegetarian, gluten-free, Halal etc).
