Swindon Foodbank helping people in crisis. 

We are happy to receive regular donations at any time from individuals, groups, churches, schools and companies to help refill our shelves ready for distribution to people who are facing this crisis.

If you were in crisis...  

...where would you turn?

Many of us have friends and family to turn to when the unexpected happens. But what if you had no family or your family could no longer help? Where would you go? What if the children were hungry, and you’re not sure where the next meal is coming from? What if you had to make the choice between putting money on the key meter for heat and fuel or feeding your family?

That’s where Swindon Foodbank helps: We provide people food and support when people need it most - helping to avert greater disaster and even greater poverty.

More Than Food - Money Life

SWINDON Foodbank is set to offer support services along with food in the near future, following the introduction of a scheme to help tackle debt and financial difficulties 

Volunteers from the charity have received training in how to signpost service users to much-needed financial services as they help them out with food boxes. 

“People are just getting by but they are having to make the choice between paying the bills and keeping a roof over their heads or putting food on the table for their children, which no-one should have to do.”

Please follow these links to the recent stories in The Swindon Advertiser

SouthWest Hardcore performed at The Rolleston Arms on Friday February 24th at 7.30pm in aid of Swindon Foodbank with a crowd of around 200 people who were asked to bring along an item of tinned food on the night and/or make cash donations to the charity. 

Over 122kilos of food and around £50 was donated.

The re-launch Party was the idea of John Derry and his brother Chris who after taking a brief break from promoting and performing have decided to make a comeback. During their time away times were hard for them and at one point they needed the help of the Swindon Foodbank themselves so this is their way of "giving something back". 

For more info see

Alert - We have a shortage of... 

Coffee (100gm) Tinned Fruit e.g. peaches, pears, plums, fruit cocktail, pineapple, Tinned Puddings e.g. rice, sage, tapioca, custard and Toilet Rolls - can you help by donating these particular items?

Thank you.
