The Basingstoke Foodbank provides emergency food and support to local people in the Basingstoke and Tadley areas who are in crisis and in danger of going hungry.

Many Foodbank clients are low income families hit by a crisis that is not their fault, such as redundancy, reduced working hours or something as seemingly small as an unexpected bill. Others are victims of domestic violence, people experiencing benefit delay or facing debt problems or those hit by illness.

Foodbanks are an emergency food service.  We receive and store food donated by individuals, church groups and local businesses and we give out food parcels, in exchange for vouchers issued by our 3rd party partner agencies, who have issued them to their clients as they have judged that they are in crisis. As a result of the need for social distance that Covid19 demands, we are no longer able to see Clients face to face with their vouchers; instead, we  are receiving vouchers electronically from our partner agencies and then volunteer drivers deliver food parcels to Clients' homes. 

We follow up our delivery to the Client by phone to see if there is anything more can be done to help them whilst they are in such a low ebb.  We offer to pray with / for the Clients if they are happy for us to do so.

At the time of this update, September 2020, we are presently helping every month this year more than twice the number of people we were helping in the corresponding month in 2019.
