Somer Valley Food Bank

Foodbank is a store where food donated by the community is banked, and can be drawn on by people in crisis. It is a simple and unique concept designed to help individuals in crisis by providing free emergency food for 3 days (10 balanced meals). This period can be extended if necessary. We collect food from the public at supermarkets, from churches, from local communities and through local groups and schools, and this is “banked” in a store. 

People in need can receive these emergency rations via referrals from registered Care Professionals such as Social Services, Health Visitors, Probation Officers, Church Pastoral Workers, schools and others working in the front line of poverty.
