Your Local Foodbank

A friend in need is a friend we feed! Christ Church collect provisions on the first Sunday of each month at the 9.00am and 10.45am services. These are taken to the Bromley Foodbank which operates under the Trussell Trust.

If you would like to make a donation, please give non-perishable items with long sell-by dates.  The food parcels are made up under guidelines from a nutritionist and items outside the guidelines are considered “extras” – things like sauces (brown or tomato), stock cubes, flour, super noodles, crisps, nuts, fruit or herbal teas.  Clients often come by public transport so adding lots of extras isn’t always an option.  From time to time, there will be a particular need for certain items. At the moment, the Foodbank need these items:

  • Food and drink: UHT milk, fruit juice (long life), sponge puddings, squash, pasta sauce, coffee, cold meat, sweets, and ‘bags for life’.  At the moment we don’t need pasta, soups, baked beans or cereals.
  • Hygiene and cleaning products: washing powder (small packets), deodorant, shaving foam, shampoo, ladies sanitary wear, shower gel, disposable nappies (size 4, 5 or 6), toothbrushes, toothpaste, toilet rolls and other cleaning agents.

Some people may wish to donate money (which can be Gift Aided) or their time. Both are needed. More from our co-ordinators Glenis Squire or Paul Williamson

Foodbanks can be an emotive subject but the reality is that there are many families who are unable to cope, and this is a life line for them.
