Teams respond to food bank shortage

30/09/2019


Avenues staff dug deep after hearing their local food bank was running low on supplies.

Employees donated more than 100 items which they then delivered to the Trinity Church centre in Bexleyheath, which is run by Trussell Trust.

Foodbanks support people who are struggling to find the money eat, or buy basic toiletries and personal hygiene items. This is typically because of the rising cost of living, insecure work and benefit delays.

Volunteers at the foodbank offer an opportunity for people to talk about their situation and discuss various options to help them find other support, as well as a warm drink and biscuits while they wait for their food parcel to be put together.

Trinity's foodbank is open to people from 1pm - 3.30pm every Monday and 10.30 - 12.30 pm every Friday. @trusselltrust #foodbanks
