Slough foodbank

Type of organisation: Charity

Location: Slough

Slough foodbank collects non-perishable food from the local community and distributes it to people in food crisis. Clients are referred by a professional care agency after having been assessed and found in need of emergency food. Volunteers run a warehouse to collect, sort and store food donations and distribute to 3 distribution centres where the clients attend. Volunteers at the centres provide a beverage and a friendly chat whilst packing a food parcel to last for 3 days. Clients are then signposted to other agencies for on-going further support. The foodbank supports people for a limited period, 3 vouchers per crisis.
