Last year Rainham Foodbank supported 1000's of families across Rainham with emergency food parcels, but Covid19 is impacting the service from several sides.
Covid19 is impacting our foodbank in a number of ways
1. We are sadly seeing increased demand across the area and only expect this to get higher.
2. We are seeing a reduction in donations as peoples shopping habits are changing.
3. A number of our regular volunteers are from at risk groups so unable to work currently.
We need your urgent help to fund the purchase the food that is required to fill this gap.
How you can help
If you cannot currently donate food then please give to this Crowdfunder project that will allow us to purchase the food we need.
Thanks so much for all your support at this time of need.
More about our Foodbank
Rainham Foodbank is part of the Trussell Trust‘s UK-wide network of over 1200 foodbanks. The Foodbank is a Christian charity, seeded by RCCG King of Kings Community Church, to demonstrate the practical love of God in the community. The Foodbank was borne out of a sincere passion to see practical needs met within the community. It is understood that everyone needs and deserves unconditional love, irrespective of social status, conditions, race, etc. Clients receive help in re-discovering their real and misplaced values, are able to re-engage in society and faith, and to manage isolation and loneliness.
The Foodbank has been feeding and supporting over 10,000 local people in crisis since inception in 2011. Over 95 tonnes of food have been received and over 90 tonnes have been distributed up to the present day.
