We believe everyone deserves access to food regardless of circumstances. Our foodbank is open to everyone and you can self refer.
If you need an emergency food parcel or more information, please call Reconnect on 01283 547211.
Our foodbank is operated by a part time coordinator and lovely volunteers. During 2021 we were able to provide enough food for 24,975 meals. This was only made possible by the support of our community who donated money or foodbank items to support the service.
