About the organisation

“Here for the Hard Times”


We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. Our food bank provides emergency food and compassionate, practical support to people in crisis, while campaigning for a UK without the need for food banks. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.


Founded in 2013, our foodbank is working towards stopping hunger in our local area. It is a project founded by Horeb Baptist Church and supported by a range of local churches and community groups. Without our volunteers donating their time, we simply would not be able to support the thousands of people in crisis.


This is a really exciting time to join the food bank and help shape our services locally.
