Today in Kingston, there are families struggling to put food on the table. For people on low incomes, a sudden crisis- redundancy, benefit delay or even an unexpected bill- can mean going hungry. Every day parents skip meals to feed their children and people are forced to choose between paying the rent and eating. Kingston foodbank provides emergency food and support to local people in crisis.
How a foodbank works
Non-perishable food is donated by the public.
Volunteers sort and pack food into emergency food boxes.
Front-line care professionals such as doctors and social workers give foodbank vouchers to people in crisis.
Foodbank vouchers are exchanged for 3 days of food at a foodbank.
Foodbanks take time to listen and signpost clients to further support.
Kingston foodbank is part of The Trussell Trust's UK-wide foodbank network. This helps local churches and communities to open foodbanks, providing emergency food to thousands of people nationwide every year. Click here to visit The Trussell Trust's website.
