FOODBANK

The Church is open every Tuesday 10am-12pm to give emergency food to local people in crisis.

As part of our mission to be a church in the community, for the community, to serve the community we aim to help people when they need it most. This comes in the form of food, advice, prayer and a listening ear.

How it works

1 Voucher = 3 days food

How do I get a voucher?
Care professionals such as housing charities, social workers, CAB, doctors, and health visitors, identify people in crisis and issue you with a foodbank voucher. What do I do with the voucher? Foodbank clients bring their voucher to a foodbank distribution point (St Hild and St Helen Christian Fellowship Dawdon) where it can be redeemed for three days emergency food. Volunteers meet clients over a cup of tea and can signpost them to agencies who are able to help solve longer-term problems.
