Together, we’ve fed 1257 people in June who are at their lowest point with no-where else to turn. As you know we don’t want people to stay in food crisis which is why one of our advice projects gives one to one job coaching during Foodbank sessions run by Gareth Thompson (pictured in the middle).
The two men pictured next to Gareth have both started work as a result of his help! When ‘G’ came into Foodbank desperately needing food he also spoke to Gareth who helped him update his CV which he then used to land a job! He then needed to compete a lengthy application form and upload ID so he came straight back to Gareth for help and bought a friend with him, they have both since started work!
‘G’ said: “When I was stuck, I knew I could come here and you would help me and my friend. You are all kind to me and help me so much. Thank you!”
Gareth has helped 6 people back into work since he started in April.
We are really low on stock so if you are able to give any food that would be amazing! We desperately need tea bags, tinned tomatoes, UHT milk, rice pudding, baked beans.
