Who we are
Thank you so much for your donation to Ringwood Foodbank.
Our sole focus is the relief of food hardship and poverty for individuals and families living in and around Ringwood, Verwood and Fordingbridge.
This is achieved through the collection of food products donated by individuals, schools, churches and other community groups. The food is sorted and stored and then distributed to those in need.
The operation of the Foodbank is entirely dependent on volunteers. All Trustees, key post-holders, managers and staff in the warehouse and distribution centre are volunteers.
Running Ringwood Foodbank takes money as well as food donations and volunteer hours. We have overheads which we must meet in order to continue helping those in need. In spite of being staffed by around 110 volunteers, our running costs amount to over £1000 per month. The fees of hiring spaces and utilities are our biggest costs, however monetary donations also pay for food we have to buy to fill gaps in food donations. So you see, your donation, whether large or small is vitally important to us.
The Trustees wish to express their deep gratitude for your donation. Now please click on the button "Make a donation" above. THANK YOU.
