Runnymede Foodbank is part of a UK-wide network of Trussell Trust food banks providing emergency food to people in crisis nationwide.
We cover Runnymede district and the surrounding area to provide a minimum of three days emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis.
We aim to help people in a crisis by providing food, emotional support and signposting to other services as appropriate, and in doing so, help the person or family deal with the situation they are in more effectively.
People are referred to Runnymede Foodbank by the agencies working with people in need. This could be Social Workers, Health Visitors, GP’s, Schools, Citizen Advice Bureau and many of the voluntary organisations working in the area. The food (all long life) is generously donated by local people at supermarket collections, Churches, schools and local businesses.
We serve people of all faith groups and beliefs or none. We are passionate about inclusion and being non-judgemental is central to what we do. We believe that everyone has the right to have food on their plate, dignity and hope for the future.
The Foodbank would not be able to function without a fabulous team of volunteers who sort the stock, provide a welcoming face to those in need and take part in supermarket collections and other community events.
