Foodbank - Shaftesbury Christian Centre
The Wandsworth Foodbank provides emergency food and support to local people in crisis across the Wandsworth Borough.
It provides a minimum of three days’ nutritionally balanced, non-perishable emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis for reasons including:
- benefit delay
- receiving an unexpected bill on a low income
Care professionals such as doctors, teachers, health visitors, Children's Centre staff, social workers, housing associations and Citizens Advice Bureau workers identify people in crisis and issue them with a foodbank voucher.
Foodbank guests bring their voucher to one of the five Wandsworth Foodbank centres where it can be redeemed for three days’ emergency food. Volunteers at the foodbank will meet guests, take the time to listen and where possible signpost guests to agencies who may be able to provide further support.
The Wandsworth Foodbank is part of the Trussell Trust, a national network of foodbanks, and is a registered charity that relies entirely on donations from churches and the community.
