“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”


We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

If you want to make any food or financial donation please contact church office (email to We will connect you to Marie who is responsible for foodbank on behalf of St.Erkenwald's church.
