Gloucester foodbank

Charity description

Gloucester foodbank logo
Our mission is to give nutritionally balanced emergency food, enough for 3 days, to local people in crisis who have nowhere else to turn thus helping to break the cycle of poverty. Included in our parcels are toiletries and baby products. We can also offer fuel vouchers to clients on a pre-payment meter. We treat each client as an individual, with dignity and respect, putting them in touch with relevant agencies who can offer further support.

Gloucester City has 5 of the bottom 10% most deprived in neighbourhoods in England. Many of our clients come from these areas.
When there is no financial safety net, a sudden crisis, such as bereavement, redundancy can leave one unable to feed themselves or their family.
Gloucester Foodbank works to support local people who find themselves on the edge of disaster.
We partner with more than 130 agencies such as Age UK, Children’s Centres and Schools, based in Gloucester City who identify people in crisis.They refer their client to the Foodbank through a voucher system and continue to work with them until they are able to support themselves. Many Family Support Workers find families have little or no food left to feed themselves or their children. In these instances the parents will miss meals so that they can feed their children.
Since we opened in 2005 we have provided over 50,000 parcels to local people including children under 16 years of age with 3 days of emergency food, toiletries and baby products if needed.
