Giving back

Heather received help from Foodbank a couple of years ago and as a way of saying thank you she is organising a Christmas food collection at her work place.

Tania was at Asda Wal-mart on Saturday but didn’t realise we were there until she had finished her shopping. She had been helped by Foodbank in the past and wanted to give some food when she was next shopping, so she came and asked us where she could take it.

It is so special when someone who has been helped by Foodbank in the past comes to say thank you when they are in a better position and are able to give something back. This is real Community helping Community and demonstrates what Foodbank is about.

Food can be donated at Swindon Restore St John’s Church Hall, Whitbourne Avenue, Swindon SN3 2LG Monday to Friday between 10 and 4

Small amounts of food can be left at the Rainbow Bookshop in the town centre, particularly when Foodbank is there on Monday from 4.30 to 6pm or Thursday and Friday from 2.30 to 4.30pm

If you have a quantity of food to donate and would like it collected please contact the office on 01793 978045 Monday to Friday between 10 & 4 (you can leave a message outside those hours and we can get back to you) or email
