Farnham Foodbank
 
 

Farnham Foodbank is a community-based initiative which seeks to help alleviate the known unavoidable delay between people being identified as being in emotional or financial crisis, and state support becoming available to them.  This foodbank is run in partnership with local churches and first went “live” in Farnham on Friday 5th November 2010.

Linking in with the Trussell Trust, a nationwide network of similar organisations, Farnham Foodbank has the expertise to provide compassionate yet professional relief to people in the greatest short term need, and fulfil the guiding principles of restoring dignity and reviving hope.

Foodbanks are a great and very practical way to engage with the community around us, fostering powerful links not only with those directly benefiting from the food, but with local schools, supermarkets, churches and the general public.

How It Works:  Farnham Foodbank works with a range of local agencies such as Citizens Advice, housing support officers, Children’s Centres, health visitors, social services and other local charities.  These agencies can offer appropriate long-term support to those in need, but are also able to supply Foodbank Vouchers exchangeable at the Foodbank for a pack providing three days of emergency food.
