Charity description

Nourish Community Foodbank Ltd logo
Nourish is an independent community Foodbank originally set up in response to the increasing numbers of low income working households who can't make ends meet once they have paid their bills, and those individuals and families hit by welfare benefit cuts or unemployment.

Our aim is "No one need be hungry in Tunbridge Wells".

Nourish is reliant on food and funding donated by the public, local businesses, supermarkets, manufacturers and charitable trusts.

Nourish can provide short-term emergency support in a crisis to individuals and families within the town of Tunbridge Wells and surrounding areas

Front line care professionals such as health professionals, social workers, family liaison officers, housing support workers, keyworkers, police, voluntary agencies such as CAB and Age UK TW and community referrers identify people in need and refer on to Nourish.

We strive to discourage a culture of dependency, preferring to support families and individuals in crisis until they are able to move on. Our policy is to issue a maximum 12 bags to a family or individual in any 12-month period.

It's not just about food. The consequences of food poverty can be far reaching, including increased crime, loss of tenancies, mental health problems and family breakdown. Nourish can help provide more positive outcomes by offering a period of respite and an opportunity for change.
