Here is an introduction to our project.
Our foodbank is a project founded in 2012 by local churches and community groups, working together towards stopping hunger in our local area. We opened in February 2013 at a small warehouse in Howsell Road and moved to our present warehouse in Spring Lane South in October 2013. Over 20 church communities provide regular donations of food and household items, supplemented by donations at Just So in Barnards Green, Waitrose Great Malvern, Morrisons and Co-op Food in Worcester Road and in Upton upon Severn. The foodbank has over 40 referral agencies: these are local organisations which can help and advise people in difficulty and, where necessary, provide a voucher for food to be redeemed at one of our foodbank centres. The foodbank is run entirely by volunteers, supported by The Trussell Trust.
