Charity description

Newcastle-Staffs Foodbank logo
Newcastle-Staffs Foodbank is committed to restoring dignity and reviving hope for those in crisis in this area by providing emergency food supplies to individuals in need in a compassionate and caring way. The provision of food to those in crisis is an important start to relieving the crisis. However, we also want to help them wherever possible to avoid future problems. We aim to do this by supporting them in identifying the underlying cause of the crisis, and then signposting them to agencies that can help resolve the issues. Please donate to support our cause. We are very grateful for single donations, but if you feel able to enter into regular giving that is an enormous help in our budgeting and planning. You can be assured that every penny donated is spent on supporting the running of the Foodbank, enabling us to meet the needs of vulnerable people in Newcastle under Lyme Borough.

Newcastle-Staffs Foodbank is an independent organisation but is also part of a national network of foodbanks each having a similar mission. In the last reported figures from Trussell Trust (April 2017), there were 427 foodbanks in operation in the UK. Quality assurance is supported by membership of this network under the guidance of the Trussell Trust. Being part of this network provides us with, amongst other things, standardised operating procedures in a detailed and comprehensive manual, a strong ‘brand’ identity, and evaluation and inspection of our operation.
Foodbanks provide food to people in crisis by means of a voucher system, which is administered by frontline care professionals. By this intervention they help prevent people in crisis entering the downward spiral of debt, or even criminal behaviour. The food provided follows a standard list and is nutritionally balanced as far as is possible with non-perishable food items. This food is donated by the public and involves the willing cooperation of the public, supermarkets, and an army of volunteers.
