Supporting those in crisis
Supporting those in crisis
The Food Bank receives donations of food from you the public, either via organised collections from Church groups, Voluntary groups, Super Markets or Agencies. These donations are then sorted and made up into parcels.
It is our intention that the issuing of emergency food will help an existing situation and in no way enable any form of dysfunctional or destructive behaviour. It is also our intention to closely monitor all situations so as not to create dependency on the foodbank or on any other service that is provided.
Unless referrals are made by authorised agencies who have taken part in our foodbank eligibility training, all those accessing the foodbank will be asked to take part in a needs assessment interview.
Anyone finding themselves in a crisis can apply to receive a Crisis Food Parcel. Applicants will undergo an interview and assessment to ensure that free food is the primary need, that the eligibility criteria are met and determine whether there is a need to signpost the client to other help agencies.
Anyone who needs food is within our remit. We provide equal opportunities to all, and will not turn anyone in real need away.
The typical parcel contains the following items. The average value of this food parcel is £27.
Fresh bread and cakes are often available.
Our Food Bank is direct access and you do not need a referral to come and get a food parcel.
Please come along when we are open, on a Tuesday and Thursday morning, 9:30am til 12:30pm.
We are currently based at the Full Gospel Church, 60 High Street South, Rushden, NN100QX
