Help us meet the growing needs caused by the Corona Virus.
We are doing everything we can to continue to support our community by running our food bank during these times. We are now opening six days a week.
We need funding, donations and volunteers to help us meet this growing demand.
More widely we are providing cooked meals for families where children would have received free school meals. With school closure, the food bank and meals are critical for these families.
We are following strict protocols on hygiene and to avoid personal contact and focusing on the food bank and meals services.
We’re really grateful for all of the support you can give to us, both financially and with food donations and volunteering.
If you are available to volunteer, please email email@example.com
At the present time, food donations can be dropped off at the Vineyard Centre anytime between 9.30 am – 14.30 pm Monday to Thursday, and possibly afternoons as well (not guaranteed).
Please call to check before visiting as situation changes daily. 01296 424440.
Please regularly check our Facebook page for updates.
We are currently asking in particular for the following items:

- UHT milk

Under normal circumstances, we provide emergency food parcels, furniture, household goods, childrens' clothing, child and baby equipment, free of charge, to those in crisis situations and financial hardship. We aim to provide essentials to help with the immediate need.
We serve meals to various groups that are struggling financially so they can enjoy safe social interaction, with wholesome, healthy food.
In partnership with Aylesbury Vineyard Church, we offer additional groups and events aiming to build and encourage ongoing relationships within the community. These include small groups, women’s groups, family events and a group for pre-school children and their parents.
From humble beginnings in a garage in Aston Clinton, we moved to a rented shop in Walton Court in 2002 and then an industrial unit in Osier Way in 2004, as the project grew.
In 2011, we moved into The Vineyard Centre, where over 7,000 square feet — one-third of the building — is dedicated to compassion initiatives.
In 2016, we upgraded the facilities to offer our clients enhanced dignity and comfort, including new café and reception areas and additional square footage for furniture, clothing and food.
We are usually open to clients two days a week; however, special appointments are made for agencies and in exceptional circumstances.
April 2020 we are currently open six days a week (Monday-Saturday) to support our local community during this time.
