ABOUT OUR FOODBANK - Our foodbank is a project founded by local churches and community groups, working together towards stopping hunger in our local area. HOW FOODBANKS WORK - FOOD IS DONATED: Schools, churches, businesses and individuals donate non-perishable, in-date food to a foodbank. FOOD IS SORTED AND STORED - Volunteers sort food to check that it’s in date and pack it into boxes ready to be given to people in need. PROFESSIONALS IDENTIFY PEOPLE IN NEED - Foodbanks partner with a wide range of care professionals such as doctors, health visitors, social workers and police to identify people in crisis and issue them with a foodbank voucher. CLIENTS RECEIVE FOOD - Foodbank clients bring their voucher to a foodbank centre where it can be redeemed for three days’ emergency food. Volunteers meet clients over a warm drink or free hot meal and are able to signpost people to agencies able to solve the longer-term problem.
