We are really excited to let you all know that we are reopening our foodbank centres in the week of 5th July, 2021.
When Covid hit in March 2020, we had to close all of our centres and quickly move to a home delivery service. Our staff had to work from home, with only a very skeletal team based at our depot and office. Demand for food parcels went through the roof, we saw a 236% rise in the need for our services. Over 2020, we fed more than 12,500 people.
Now, at last, we are excited to say we can finally open up our centres again. Clients will need to be referred in the usual way, and then visit a foodbank centre to collect their food parcel. We know it’s really important to be able to meet our clients in person, sit down with them with a cuppa and offer a listening ear.
Our venues/times will be as follows:
Tuesdays – Merland Rise Church, Tadworth KT20 5JG
10am – 12pm
Wednesdays – Ruxley Church, Ewell KT19 0JG
1pm – 3pm
Fridays – Epsom Methodist Church KT18 5AQ
1.15 – 3.15pm
Saturdays – North Leatherhead Community Centre, Kingston KT22 7PX
10am – 11.30am
We will be running a very small delivery service on Wednesdays and Thursdays each week, only for those clients who are Covid positive or who are physically unable to get to one of our centres.
