Bournemouth Food Bank Appeal

This Christmas we have been collecting provisions for the Bournemouth Food Bank appeal.

The Trussell Trust supports communities and churches to open food banks across the UK.

The Bournemouth food bank is part of The Trussell Trusts’ network of 428 food banks, working to tackle food poverty and hunger in our local communities, as well as across the UK.

The Foodbank Network was founded in 2004 after four years of developing the original food bank based in Salisbury. Since then The Trussell Trust has helped communities work together to launch food banks nationwide in a wide range of towns and cities.

In 2016/17, The Trussell Trust’s Food bank Network provided 1,182,954 three-day emergency food supplies and support to UK people in crisis. Of these, over 430,000 went to children.

No-one in our community should face hunger. The food bank provides 3 days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food, and offers support to local people in crisis who are referred to them by support agencies.

Initially each office was given one large box to fill but by the end of the appeal we had several boxes and bags filled to the brim with a variety of food.

On 20th December 2017 the boxes were taken to the Bournemouth Food Bank depot in Charminster where we were met with a team of packers, collectors, distributors and coordinators who were busy arranging food parcels for those people in the local area who rely on this much needed service.

It is fantastic to know that over the Christmas period and into the New Year local families, the elderly and vulnerable people who need the Food Bank will not go hungry.
