Raising emergency funds to allow Rhyl Foodbank to remain open and deal with the increased demand across the Rhyl area due to Covid19.

by Rhyl Foodbank in Rhyl, Wales, United Kingdom

As the coronavirus pandemic unfolds in the UK, our main priority is ensuring the safety of everyone who comes to our food bank – whether it’s someone needing help, someone volunteering their time, or someone making a donation. 

No one in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide nutritionally balanced food and support to local people who are referred to us. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

Covid19 is impacting the Rhyl Foodbank in a number of ways

1. We are sadly seeing increased demand across the Rhyl 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 can donate food then please donate at Sussex Street Christian Centre, LL18 1SE.

If you cannot get to Sussex Street, Rhyl 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 Rhyl Foodbank

We are Rhyl Foodbank and have been open since September 2019. We are a friendly team, who want to support our local community. 

When you walk through our doors you will be greeted with a smile. As well as emergency food parcels, we are here to offer a listening ear and and if we can support you in other ways- we will certainly try.

Rhyl foodbank is a project founded by local churches and community groups, working together towards stopping hunger in our local area.

Over 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks in The Trussell Trust network is donated by the public – that’s why your food donations are absolutely vital to our ability to give everyone referred to us a balanced and nutritious three day supply of food.

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send food to other nearby foodbanks to support their work particularly if they experience shortages. This ensures your donations go to help people wherever in the UK they are.

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.

Let's make 'Rhyl Foodbank - Covid19 Crisis Appeal' happen
