WANTAGE & GROVE FOODBANK

The Wantage and Grove Foodbank is a practical, community based project, organised by local churches, which provides food parcels to
those in our area who find themselves temporarily in difficult circumstances. We are dependent upon donations of food and are staffed by church volunteers.

If you wish to donate food there are collection points at: The Independent Advice Centre, Kings bookshop, Wantage & Cornerstone Coffee Shop, Grove. (Or contact your local church).

Referrals are made by a number of agencies including: The Butler Centre, The Independent Advice Centre, the Health Centre and local churches. The Food bank is intended to provide short term emergency help to people who find themselves for whatever reason (be it job loss, benefit problems or ill health) unable to feed themselves or their families.

All food needs to be tinned or packets (with a shelf life of 3-6months if possible).

Please remember that we cannot use out of date items or homemade items.

Many thanks for the generous donations of food and money. Both are much appreciated. With Harvest Festival donations, this is now the time of year when stocks will be high so the box in the Wantage chapel vestibule will not be used for a while.

Money donations are always welcomed as some items quite often need to be bought — e.g. long life milk and fruit juice. If you would like more information about food bank, Helen Carter would be pleased to hear from you.
