Swindon Foodbank, our 

community helping people in 


Together we can stop hunger.....

It is Harvest time once again and so we are happy to receive donations from individuals, groups, churches, schools and companies to help refill our shelves ready for distribution. 

If you are able to "POP ON A POUND" to one of your donated tins this would help us raise funds to keep the service operating for another year.  Thank You.

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.
